Benderspink, the company that I work for, is developing this comic into a movie. I read all of the issues over break and I have to say that it is truly amazing material.
It's that rare thing, a piece of pop-fiction that is extremely smart and well-written as well as completely uncompromising. It's truly epic and I recommend it to you all.
Great news as Rome creator Bruno Heller wants to make a film picking up where the prematurely canceled series left off.
"I discovered halfway through writing the second season the show was going to end," Heller said. "The second was going to end with death of Brutus. Third and fourth season would be set in Egypt. Fifth was going to be the rise of the messiah in Palestine. But because we got the heads-up that the second season would be it, I telescoped the third and fourth season into the second one, which accounts for the blazing speed we go through history near the end. There's certainly more than enough history to go around."
I think it's got a pretty good shot as HBO has already said that they shouldn't have canceled the show.
I love this series.
