More Eisner films planned

by Matthew Price Modified: April 22, 2013 at 2:18 pm •  Published: May 6, 2008

ComicMix picks up a story from Wired indicating that Creative Artists Agency picked up the rights to Eisner’s estate and will push for more movies based on those books, including A Contract With God.

Wired pushes it as a savvy business move, given the continued success of comic-book movies in the wake of Iron Man, and especially given the buzz around the Frank Miller-directed “The Spirit.”

Eisner obviously has some great work, though I don’t know if it’s the same audience, at all, as that for “Iron Man.” And I’m not sure you can improve on “A Contract With God” or “A Life Force” or “Invisible People” by making them into films — they’re nearly perfect as graphic novels!  But I suppose more people being exposed to and aware of Eisner’s work is a good end goal for all of this.
