Renny Harlin recently finished work on “Brodie’s Law”, a $35 million sci-fi actioneer with an interesting concept. Now, Movies Online has a synopsis for the graphic novel adaptation which involves corporate espionage, conspiracy and a shape-shifting hero capable of looking like anyone by absorbing their DNA. Here’s the details:
“Jack Brodie, a prison-hardened thief with a short temper and a bad attitude, hopes that a corporate espionage gig will be his ticket to a better life with his estranged, drug addicted wife and their son. The heist goes awry, but Brodie escapes with a secret project: the chemical formula PM13.
Brodie discovers that the heist was a setup; his wife has been killed and his son kidnapped. Fueled by revenge, and with the help of an alluring researcher, Brodie unlocks the secret of formula PM13. He infects himself with the formula, gaining the ability to absorb human DNA and take on the physical form and mind of whoever he touches.
In his desperate search for answers, Brodie becomes the very man who killed his wife and then a sultry dominatrix who lusts after the local crime boss. Before losing his own identity to these transformations, Brodie must confront the man behind this elaborate plot, rescue his son and save his own sanity.”
