  • Dimension buys "Comic Book: The Movie" - The Hollywood Reporter March 1, 2006

    Dimension bites on genre spoof 'Comic Book'

    Dimension Films has pre-emptively bought John Unholz's superhero spoof "Comic Book: The Movie." The spec, which was bought for mid-six against seven figures, went out wide Thursday morning and was acquired by Dimension on Thursday night after drawing interest from multiple studios. Described as in the vein of the "Scary Movie" franchise and the recent boxoffice hit "Date Movie," "Comic Book" is a spoof of comic book-based films. There are no producers or director attached yet. Alexander Franklin is shepherding for Dimension.

    Dimension, which has a history of success lampooning the horror genre with its "Scary Movie" franchise, also had been developing the satire "Superhero!" with "Scary Movie 3" filmmakers David Zucker, Craig Mazin and Robert Weiss. That project has had no new movement in more than a year. Unholz, a former TV scribe who was a staff writer on WB Network's "Hype," sold the TV pilot "Operator Standing By" to Happy Madison Prods. "Comic Book" marks his first foray into feature film writing. He is repped by manager Dave Chariton at Miners Mills Entertainment and attorney Mark Wetzstein. (Tatiana Siegel and Borys Kit)
