Framelight Picks Up “Chi-Chian”

Framelight has optioned film rights to the cult comic “Chi-Chian” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The fairy tale-tinged “Chi-Chian” is set in a dystopian New York — the city has lost its independence and become a prefecture of Japan — and centers on a seemingly ordinary young woman who has been tapped as a heroine and must fight samurais, robots and zombies to protect her loved ones.

The six-issue comic has also generated a role-playing game and digital episodes for Syfy.
