Station #1 Comic Book. First Printing in NM Condition. Publisher/Year: BOOM! Studios, June 2008
“I, Robot” Writer Jeff Vintar And Producer Laurence Mark Reunite For Big Screen Adaptation CBS Films announced today that it has optioned the feature film rights to comic book publisher BOOM! Studios’ “Station” series by creator/writer Johanna Stokes. The announcement was made by Amy Baer, President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Films, the feature film division of CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS.A and CBS). Laurence Mark will produce along with BOOM! Studios co-founders Andrew Cosby and Ross Richie, and the studio has signed Jeff Vintar to write the screenplay. David Blackman will serve as Executive Producer. In the “Station” comic book mini-series, five nations have sent their finest astronauts to operate Earth’s first multinational space station, but one of them turns up dead. Is it sabotage, an accident or murder? The remaining personnel race against time to solve the mystery that may expose one of their own as a killer. “Johanna Stokes has created an exciting property that offers a new layer of intrigue to the enigmatic space setting,” said Baer. “‘Station’ delivers as both an exhilarating thriller and a riveting mystery. We are excited to have the opportunity to bring it to movie audiences.” “This feels a bit like a Hitchcock movie in a James Cameron setting, and Jeff Vintar is ideally suited to adapt this graphic novel for the screen, just as he was a superb choice to re-interpret Isaac Asimov’s sci-fi classic ‘I, Robot’ for film,” notes producer Mark. “CBS Films is an exciting company launching an arresting slate of films. We’re honored to be in business with them,” said BOOM! Studios CEO Ross Richie. “And to have a chance to do this with one of the smartest, classiest, and best producers in the business like Laurence Mark was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.” Under the agreement, CBS Films will hold feature film rights to all material produced by Boom! Studios under the “Station” title, which to date encompasses four 2008-published comic books and a graphic novel. The big screen adaptation, which will be titled “The Station,” reunites writer Jeff Vintar and producer Laurence Mark (the 81st Academy Awards, “Dreamgirls,” the upcoming “Julie & Julia”) who worked together in the same capacities on “I, Robot,” the international hit starring Will Smith. BOOM! Studios is managed by Peter Golden by Golden Entertainment West.
