Lucid Comic Book Optioned

March 9, 2012 Variety reports that Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to Archaia Entertainment’s comic book mini-series Lucid, which is described as “a tale of what would happen to Harry Potter if he grew up and joined the CIA.” Writer/producer Akiva Goldsman (Jonah Hex, Batman Forever) will develop and produce the film as a potential new film franchise. Zachary Quinto’s production banner Before The Door, which created the book, also is on board to adapt the property for the bigscreen. The book is written by True Blood‘s Michael McMillian and drawn by Anna Wieszcyzk. WB is currently looking for new projects to replace the Harry Potter franchise (which ended last summer), and Lucid seems to be one of them.

Below is a summary of the four book mini-series:

Lucid takes place in a parallel universe where magic is real and world leaders have secret agents working to fight off supernatural threats. Main character is a young agent, recently appointed “Protector of the Realm,” who must use his skills as a covert spy and combat mage to stop an occult technology dealer.
