    "Monster Attack Network"

    Disney has picked up the rights to "Monster Attack Network," a graphic novel published by AIT/Planet Lar. Jason Netter is producing via his Kickstart Entertainment banner.

    The adventure tale, written by Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman with art by Nima Sorat, is set on the picture-perfect Pacific island of Lapuatu, which is populated by giant monsters. There, a team of adventurers deal with rampages and related crises and clean up messes afterwards. The team faces its biggest challenge when a shady industrialist shows up.

    The book was published in May 2007.

    Disney's Shane Snoke brought the book to Brigham Taylor. The company is eyeing the project, described as having a "Men in Black" tone, as a tentpole with franchise potential.

    Netter, whose Kickstart focuses on comic IP, was a producer on Universal's "Wanted." Among his projects are AIT's "Couriers," set up at Rogue, and the Garth Ennis comic "The Boys," which he is producing with Original Films, at Columbia. He also executive produced the ABC Family pilot "Nobody," also based on an AIT comic.
