Platinum Develops “The Weapon” Feature

Platinum Studios, Inc. are developing a film adaptation of Fred Van Lente’s comic book series “The Weapon”.

The story follows a martial arts enthusiast, Tommy Zhou, who has discovered a means to create solid objects from light — and invented a superhero persona to promote it, The Weapon!

Not believing the legends his grandfather told him as a child, Zhou’s inventions unsuspectingly make him the target of a millennia-old assassin cult convinced he’s unlocked the ancient mystical techniques of a secret order.

Scott Rosenberg (“Cowboys & Aliens”) will produce.
