…because Sam Raimi set up the movie deal at Paramount! :
Hollywood Reporter article
Paramount Pictures has preemptively picked up the rights to “Monster Zoo,” an upcoming graphic novel from Doug TenNapel, for a live-action adaptation that will be produced by Sam Raimi and Josh Donen via their Buckaroo Entertainment banner and Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein.
And this from Aint It Cool News
And what, you ask, is MONSTER ZOO? Well, it’s the latest graphic novel from Doug TenNapel, whose work I’ve been quite vocal about over the last few years. Doug’s sold projects to New Regency/Fox (CREATURE TECH) and Universal (TOMMYSAURUS REX), but the idea of Sam Raimi getting involved in this one is verrrrry exciting.
Raimi’s movie A Simple Plan is among my favorite all-time films. It’s nice to be in business with people who love telling stories…about creatures, comics and underdogs.
