“Plutona” Comic Series Becomes A Film

Waypoint Entertainment has acquired the film rights to “Essex County” author Jeff Lemire’s coming-of-age five-issue limited comic series “Plutona”.

The story centers on a group of kids who find the body of a famous dead superhero in the woods. Ken Kao, Dan Kao, Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder will produce.

This follows on from Waypoint’s acquisition of Mark Millar’s comic titles “American Jesus” and “Supercrooks” earlier this year.
