El Arsenal, “Frozen” Comics Become Films

Framelight Prods. and Arcana Studios are set to co-produce film adaptations of the graphic novels “El Arsenal” and “Frozen Wasteland” says Variety.

“El Arsenal” is set in the future when the world is on the verge of collapse and mankind’s best hope lies with a Mexican mercenary who’s seeking a powerful biological weapon in cockroaches.

Michael Miner (“Robocop”) is in talks to adapt the screenplay.

“Frozen Wasteland” is set in an America covered in snow as rival gangs fight for control in Los Angeles, where law and order has collapsed and the government is afraid it will lose the city.

Jeffrey D. Erb, Robert L. Robinson Jr. and Sean O’Reilly will produce both films.
