Bluewater Productions and Roger Corman will adapt/re-imagine some of the director/producer's work, starting in 2009.

Properties in the "Roger Corman Presents" franchise will include "Death Stalker", "Barbarian Queen", "Humanoids from the Deep" and the superhero "Black Scorpion", featured in two made-for-cable movies on Showtime and a 22 one-hour episodes on the Sci Fi Channel.

"Comic books have given me so much over the years that it's time I gave something back to the medium," Corman said.

Bluewater is also working with the Vincent Price estate.

"Roger Corman's body of work is so visual and visceral," said Bluewater's president Darren G. Davis.

"What will make these titles stand out is that Mr. Corman will be personally involved in their development.

Each Bluewater-Corman book will include interviews, behind-the-scene pictures and reminiscing about movie titles from Corman.

Black Scorpion co-creator Craig J. Nevius is overseeing the Bluewater/Corman collaboration...
