Disney Picks Up Comic MONSTER ATTACK NETWORK
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has picked up the rights to the graphic novel, MONSTER ATTACK NETWORK, published by AIT/Planet Lar in May 2007.
Disney’s Shane Snoke brought the book to Brigham Taylor. The company is eyeing the project, described as having a “Men in Black” tone, as a tentpole with franchise potential.
Here is the official synopsis of the comic from AIT/Planet Lar:
MARVEL! At the Pacific island of Lapuatu, perfect in every way…except for the giant monsters. THRILL! As Nate Klinger and his daring team of first-responders at the Monster Attack Network expertly deal with the frequent rampaging-beast-related crises. WONDER! If the shady American industrialist who comes to the island bearing “gifts” and the mysterious, gorgeous Lapuatuan ex-patriate are up to no good. ENJOY! The hair-raising adventures of the noble men and the drop-dead sexy women of the MONSTER ATTACK NETWORK!
I haven’t read the comic, but am curious to know what the people who have read it think. Is it a good idea to make Monster Attack Network into a movie? Do you think Disney is the right company for it?
