John Landis Is Ghoulishly Yours

John Landis will direct “Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines,” a biopic based on the life of the publisher of EC Comics and Mad magazine reports Variety.

The story centers on an anti-establishment group of artists and writers, led by a reluctant Gaines and cohort Al Feldstein, as they produce their comicbooks.

At the peak of his success, Gaines became a First Amendment figurehead due to his unapologetic testimony before a Senate subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency.

Landis will develop the project with Joel Eisenberg, who’s also penning the screenplay.
