Warners Guided By "The Red Star"

Warner Bros. has acquired film rights to the graphic novel series "The Red Star", with producer Neil Moritz ("The Green Hornet") attached to develop the property.

Set in a sci-fi/fantasy world, "The Red Star" was inspired by both Russian folklore and military history, heavily reminiscent of a post-World War II Soviet Russia mixing technology and sorcery.

"...'The Red Star' is about an epic battle in a world of militarized sorcery and monolithic technology, where -- unknown to all but a few -- the ghosts of old soldiers continue to fight alongside the living..."

First launched in 1999 by Image Comics, "The Red Star" was created by Christian Gossett who, launched his own Archangel Studios in 2002 to self-publish subsequent issues.
