January 18, 2011 Comic book news sites have been reporting rumors for the last few months that BRAT PACK has been optioned for a film. Now that contracts are signed, I can say that the rumors are true. ARS NOVA, the New York theater and film group who produced BLACK DYNAMITE, have optioned the rights from me. The deal was repped by Scott Agostoni. Tarik Saleh, who wrote and animated METROPIA, has signed on to direct. Tarik and I have been on the phone quite a bit, and I’m happy to report that Tarik, myself, producers Jillian Apfelbaum and Jon Steingart are all in sync that any film should be built around the same tone as the book. At this moment, Jillian and Tarik are looking at potential screenwriters.
