Top Cow Comic 'Crosshair' Landing at Summit; Mandeville Producing
Summit is in negotiations to pick up Crosshair, an action comic book from Top Cow Prods.
David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, riding high as part of the producing team behind the Oscar-winning boxing movie The Fighter, are attached as producers, while Morgan Foehl is attached as the writer.
Mandeville picked up the comic during last year’s Comic Con, intent on developing the property as a film. In January, it set Foehl to write the script.
Summit is in the midst of making deals for the rights to the comic, the producers and writer.
Top Cow’s Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins are exec producing along with Mandeville’s David Manpearl. Jeff Katz, who wrote the comic with Silvestri, is co-producing.
The story centers on a former CIA assassin-turned-suburban dad who must race against the clock to stop a program inside his brain from turning him into an unstoppable killing machine whose target is the U.S. president.
