"ECHO" To Maybe Make the Big Screen

Author/artsist, Terry Moore, recently sold the screen rights to his self-published comic "ECHO" to producer Lloyd Levin (Watchmen, Hellboy, The Rocketeer)

The comic is about main character, Julie Martin, who is taking photos in the desert when a government test goes wrong and causes an expolsion and she is covered with a liquid metal that has unknown properties.
Soon afterwards, the government is looking for Julie but she's now on the run with the help of some friends.

Movie studios, looking to cash in on comic-related properties, are expanding their vision to non-super-powered or caped characters.
The sci-fi element of "ECHO" coupled with Terry's ability to write characters with a lot of depth to them, is ripe for the Hollywood film treatment.

If you still haven't read "ECHO", the second TPB came out a few weeks ago and should be available at the store. Vol. 1 is issues 1-5 and vol. 2 is issues 6-10.

I was going to come here and ask if Ferretnick had been notified, but...it turns out that, yes.
