I was wondering if anyone has any interest in turning one of my screenplays into a graphic novel. One is a sports drama about sumo wrestling called "The Sumo". The other, "Griffin", is an environmental thriller in a popcorn movie wrapper: it's about a rich and arrogant hunter who meets his match in the form of a unique and intelligent creature. "The Sumo" actually has some of the elements in place - like a former professional wrestling star who is going to play the lead part. "Griffin" has not really been read by anyone yet. Neither script has financing in place yet.
I think they both lend themselves to graphic novels, particularly the second one. You would retain all the rights to the graphic novel (unless I'm involved with additional writing), while I would have all the screenplay/movie rights. I would also be able to use the graphic novel in promotion of the screenplay/getting the movie funded.
I have written, produced and directed one feature film in the past - "The Second Best Science Fiction Movie Ever Made".
