Power Options Critically Acclaimed Graphic Novel ‘Shooting War’

Power is going ahead with the development of a brand new state-of-the-art series on the war on terror, the media and the rise of “citizen journalism” after optioning the film and television rights for Anthony Lappé’s critically-acclaimed graphic novel SHOOTING WAR, illustrated by Dan Goldman.

The graphic novel, which was recently published by Grand Central Publishing in the US and Wiedenfeld & Nicolson in the UK, is a near-future political thriller/dark satire about a young blogger whose greatest dream becomes his worst nightmare when he finds himself in over his head trying to cover an out-of-control front of the war on terror.

The deal was brokered by Brendan Deneen of Objective Entertainment and Luke Speed of Marjacq on behalf of Ian Kleinert at Objective Entertainment, who originally sold the book to Executive Editor Jaime Levine at Grand Central. SHOOTING WAR began its life as an online serialized web comic on Smithmag.net, where it garnered instant critical raves, leading to the sale as a hardcover graphic novel.

Power is currently in co-production with Crusoe, an action-packed 13 part series for NBC in the US; XIII: The Conspiracy, starring Val Kilmer and Stephen Dorff; and the political two part mini series The Summit starring Mia Maestro, James Purefoy and Christopher Plummer, which will all headline at MIP.

Anthony Lappé, a journalist and documentary film-maker who has written for The New York Times and produced the Amnesty International Award-winning Showtime documentary about Iraq, “BattleGround: 21 Days on the Empire’s Edge,” comments: “I originally conceived SHOOTING WAR as a film so I’m very excited to have it come full circle. I really respect the kind of material Power develops and produces, and am excited to work with them in bringing SHOOTING WAR to life.”

Power founder and CEO Justin Bodle said: “This has to be the graphic novel of 2007. I am delighted that Power now has the opportunity to bring this astute, vivid and brilliant web serial and book to the screen.”

Praise for SHOOTING WAR:

“A stunningly rendered graphic novel that manages to stick a red-hot skewer into the war on terror, Islamic jihad, the mainstream media and the antiestablishment blogosphere in one fell swoop” (Newsweek)

One of the “100 Best Things in the World” (British GQ)

“Ferocious satire” (Financial Times)

“The Apocalypse Now of the War on Terrorism” (Forbes)

“Scary-smart” (Rolling Stone)

    All mortgage lenders subscribe to techniques which tell them regardless of whether you have left one more lender owing them cash, or had been fraudulent in any way. Information is shared with all reporting organizations, so that you cannot avoid this. See if you can clean up your historical past with all the previous financial institution. That will not solve the dilemma, but is a step in the proper direction.

    In my opinion that a foreclosures can have a major effect on the borrower’s life. House foreclosures can have a 7 to 10 years negative affect on a debtor’s credit report. A borrower having applied for a home loan or just about any loans for that matter, knows that the particular worse credit rating can be, the more hard it is to get a decent bank loan. In addition, it could possibly affect the borrower’s chance to find a decent place to lease or hire, if that turns into the alternative property solution. Great blog post.

    If you are looking for something new with cutting edge technology and a fool-proof methodology then check this out. I quit my job about 11 years ago and have never looked back (I make all my money online). I don’t consider my self to be a web guru but I have managed to do pretty well. I have tried email marketing, spent many years perfect SEO and PPC advertising, and everything else. There have been some good years and there have been some years that were… not so good. Let me just go ahead and tell you what I am getting at. You have probably heard this before but this really is nothing like anything that you have seen before. It was put together by someone that I highly respect. He is technically one of the big ‘Guru’s’, even though he doesn’t act like one. He just quietly goes about making thousands of dollars a week. Not long ago, I got an invite to see this system in action. It uses reverse engineering of traditional marketing methods in an untapped market and incorporates tools and software to help automate your tasks. You will be helping other people make money while making money for yourself. This method can be used by anyone. You don’t need to have experience in Internet marketing. I am so glad that I found this system and I am sure that you will too. Do yourself a favor and at least take a look at the video presentation. -> http://cash411.info/go/239
