Klaus Comic Book Optioned

May 3, 2016

Is Grant Morrison’s Klaus being optioned for a movie. Possibly if Bleeding Cool is to be believed.

Klaus is Grant Morrison’s Santa Year One story featuring the origin of Santa Claus. Copies of Klaus #1 are fairly cheap and can be easily found. A few copies closed after the news, especially the lower priced variants, including the 1:100 variant.

From Bleeding Cool:

Bleeding Cool understands from certain people close to writer Grant Morrison that Fox has optioned his comic book Klaus for development as a feature film.

Published by Boom! and drawn by Dan Mora, Klaus tells the warrior origin of the man who would won day be Father Christmas.

Boom! Studios have an ongoing relationship with Fox, with a first look deal with Twentieth Century Fox TV. But this would be for something a little… cinematic.

Boom! declined comment when approached last night. Grant Morrison did not return e-mails.
