Radical Imprints Worthington's Full Clip

Radical Publishing and Full Clip Productions report they have entered into an 'imprint' deal, with Full Clip, a company headed by actor Sam Worthington ("Avatar") and his partners Michael Schwarz/John Schwarz, to develop intellectual property, to be produced under the Radical banner.

Worthington and John Schwarz will also star in the film adaptations of select projects.

The first project in development under the imprint is "Damaged", created by John and Michael Schwarz, written by Eisner Award winner David Lapham, following two brothers committed to justice in different ways – one inside the law, one outside of it.

"...Now, with the end of their careers approaching, they must train their replacements, hoping to remake each in their image. But the vigilante code has changed and the brothers are left unprepared for the true lawlessness and corruption that is about to be unleashed..."

"As a lifelong fan of comics, I'm so excited to have the chance to create material which I can then personally bring to life on screen," Worthington said. "This is a great opportunity..."

Radical Publishing, run by Levine and Jesse Berger, recently reported development of a feature adaptation of its soon-to-debut graphic novel, "Legends: The Enchanted", with Imagine Entertainment.

Radical is also adapting "The Last Days of American Crime" with Worthington attached to star/produce, as well as the property "Oblivion", currently being developed with "TRON: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski.

Radical Publishing currently has 19 titles in circulation, published in 7 countries, as well as a catalog containing more than 70 properties and 500 characters.
