Levin Planning A “Mage” Movie

Producer Lloyd Levin (“Watchmen,” “Hellboy”) has scored the film rights to part of Matt Wagner’s classic 1980’s comicbook series “Mage” reports Variety.

Levin acquired the rights to the fifteen-book collection that makes up “The Hero Discovered” story arc.

A reinterpretation of the Camelot legend, the story follows an alienated young man who learns he has superhuman abilities. With the help of a magic baseball bat, he must stop the evil Umbra Sprite.

The project was previously in development at Spyglass with Zack Snyder attached to direct. Levin and Andrew Cosby will produce and a writer is close to being locked in.
