Dimension Films will develop a live-action adaptation of Michael Allred-created comic book series "Madman."
Joining the continuous flow of making superhero flicks, Dimension Films finally has landed a deal to develop "Madman" into the big screen with Robert Rodriguez and Elizabeth Avellan producing via their Troublemaker Studios.
Based on the comic book series created by Michael Allred, the flick will follow a template similar to "Sin City" as it will also be shot entirely at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Texas. George Huang is onboard to direct as well as help Allred penning the script.
As for the premise, the film undoubtedly will center on the journey of the titular hero, a car accident victim brought to life by a pair of eccentric scientists who instill in him enhanced senses, psychic power and exceptional physical skill.
