July 12, 2012 TORONTO – Canadian screenwriter Arne Olsen is to adapt Richard Comely‘s iconic masked crusader Captain Canuck for the big screen.
The feature film adaptation is being done by Mind’s Eye Entertainment, and is based on the Captain Canuck comic book series.
The Captain Canuck franchise launched in 1975 as a comic book by writer/creator Comely and, after the second issue, by fellow artist George Freeman.
The Captain Canuck franchise has been optioned many times over the years as a possible TV series or movie, most recently by Sinking Ship Entertainment.
Now Mind’s Eye will look to develop a live action movie for international movie screens.
Olsen’s screen credits include Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie and Cop and a Half.
With the script only now getting under away, the Captain Canuck producers have yet to decide which Canadian actor will don head-to-toe in figure-hugging rubber to play the Captain Canuck character.
