On the heels of announcing their acquisition of the upcoming Archaia graphic novel, Bolivar, Warner Bros. announced they have also optioned Lucid, the title created by actor and writer Michael McMillian (“True Blood”) and published in association with Zachary Quinto and Before the Door. Reporter Marc Graser writes:
Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to Archaia Entertainment’s comicbook mini-series “Lucid” for writer-producer Akiva Goldsman to develop and produce as a potential new film franchise. Zachary Quinto’s production banner Before the Door, which created the book, also is on board to adapt the property for the bigscreen.
With “Harry Potter” having ended its run at the studio, WB is on the hunt for new projects to take its place. When it was first introduced at San Diego Comic-Con, in 2009, “Lucid” was described as a tale of what happened to Harry Potter if he grew up and joined the CIA.
