Comic-Con: ‘Babylon 5′s J. Michael Straczynski Teams With Graphic India, Chernin On ‘Titans’ Feature
BY MIKE FLEMING JR | Friday July 25, 2014 @ 5:38pm PDT
.

Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski and digital company Graphic India have joined with Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes‘ Chernin Entertainment to turn Straczynski’s upcoming graphic novel Titans into a feature. Straczynski, whose credits include Thor, World War Z and Sense8, will write the script and produce through his Studio JMS banner. The logline: When ships from an unknown world crash-land around Earth, the Titans on board — massive entities with no memory of where they came from or where they were going — bond telepathically with the ordinary humans who encounter them. The story follows the Titans and their humans over a decade as the world tries to use them for their own purposes. Some want military superiority, others peace; some want to build cities, others to destroy them. The result is great hope and terrible wars. Chernin Entertainment will produce with Graphic India, the joint venture that Chernin formed with Liquid Comics and CA Media LP, Chernin’s Asian investment arm. Sharad Devarajan and Gotham Chopra of Graphic India and Liquid Comics also will serve producing roles.

Said Straczynski: “In an increasingly international marketplace, Titans represents the kind of multinational storytelling that will play an ever more important role in both film and publishing. Sharad Devarajan and Gotham Chopra have been extremely supportive of this story, and Peter Chernin is exactly the right person to shepherd this into a successful film franchise.”
Graphic novel AND feature film. Cool!

Very interesting. I am guessing that this was picked up after the comic was produced, because JMS seemed so insistent that if he was writing comics, they'd be comics, and if he wanted to do a film, he'd do a film, in it's own right and not comic derived. He seemed to really push that line when Studio JMS first launched - that he wouldn't be creating comics with the express intent that they be made into films or TV.

So, I find this two pronged approach quite surprising.

The idea sounds great though, and I'm intruged to see what comes of it.

Anyone know when the graphic novel will be released? I was kinda expecting some news by now on the GN, as this would need to appear first to perhaps gain a following for the film?

Is this dead? I emailed Graphic India for an update, as 'a film/comics blogger' (I still have an old comics blog that was quite well read).

Nothing.
