Jonathan Mostow nabs The Megas

The endless waltz between graphic novels and the big screen continues apace as a man better known for directing films (Terminator 3’s Jonathan Mostow) has pitched an idea to Virgin Comics. And then promptly started working up a movie version.

He hasn’t yet committed to either writing or directing the eventual pic, but he’ll definitely be producing the tale, which lifts the lid on an alternative America ruled by a privileged upper class called the Megas. As usual in this sort of society, there’s corruption and murder lurking just underneath the surface and it takes a formerly loyal detective to uncover what lurks at the Megas’ dark heart.
