ECHO Latest Comic Optioned To Film.

echo_issue02Variety is reporting that producer Lloyd Levin, one of the people who brought Hellboy and Watchmen to the screen, has purchased the rights to creator Terry Moore’s self-published Echo comic book.

Echo focuses on a photographer named Julie Martin who is in the wrong place at the wrong time. She is caught in the fallout from an accident at a military training exercise and finds herself partially coated in a radioactive metallic goo that gives her special powers. She soon finds herself on the run from the Government who wants their weapon back and another accident victim who wants the goo all to himself.

Echo is Moore’s follow-up to his masterwork, Strangers in Paradise, a comic that screams for an film or TV adaptation.

Variety seems to believe that this will be only the first of many options of comic books announced in the lead up to San Diego Comic Con.
