Syfy Adapting Frank Miller's Ronin, Oni Press' Letter 44 and Image Comics' Clone Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.30.2014
A lot of projects in the works...
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Syfy is set to produce adaptations of Frank Miller's series Ronin and Oni Press' Letter 44. Meanwhile, The Wrap reports that they will also be adapting Image Comics' Clone. Ronin will be a mini-series event and Syfy is currently looking for a writer. Letter 44 and Clone are both being developed for series.
Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) will write the script and direct the pilot for Letter 44. Series creator David Schulner will write and executive produce Clone with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.
Here's a synopsis of Ronin: Originally published from 1983-84, Ronin tells the tale of a legendary warrior, the Ronin, a dishonored, masterless 13th century samurai, who is mystically given a second chance to avenge his master's death. Finding himself suddenly reborn in a futuristic and corrupt 21st century New York City, the samurai discovers he has one last chance to regain his honor. But to do so, he must defeat the reincarnation of his master's killer, the ancient demon Agat.
Here's a description for Letter 44: Letter 44, created by Charles Soule and Alberto Alburquerque, tells the story of newly-elected President Stephen Blades, who reads the letter left for him in the Oval Office by his predecessor and learns the stunning secret that seven years earlier NASA discovered an alien construction project in the asteroid belt. A crew of heroic astronauts was sent to investigate, and they're nearing the conclusion of their epic journey.
And here is the synopsis for Clone: Image Comics' Clone chronicles Dr. Luke Taylor, whose perfect life comes to a dramatic halt when an identical, bloodied version of himself arrives at his doorstep with news that he is one of many clones… and they're all after his pregnant wife and their unborn child!
