Newsarama talks up Top Cow's Matt Hawkins about the live-action Witchblade movie that's supposed to be in the works, and the lack of movement on the project. Hawkins responds that it's not the economy that's keeping the movie down-- it's the script.
“We simply do not yet have a script yet that we all like. We had a window to go into production that has clearly passed but the project is very much alive and kicking. I don’t think I’ll lay out any dates at this point given the delays but we’re in the process of working with a new writer.”
Of course the writer isn't, only referred to as “she,” but it's nice to see that Top Cow wants to make sure the script isn't dependent entirely on the fanservice that Witchblade tends to be known for, at least in my anime-filled mind (I've never read the American comics).
Those of you who've watched the anime, read the manga, and/or read the American comics: what do you think? What kind of Witchblade movie would you watch?
