Courtesy of publisher Red Giant Entertainment, the chilling Isaiah Washington drama Blue Caprice, from director Alexandre Moors (his debut feature), which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and was picked up by Sundance Selects, will be adapted to the page as a graphic novel, in a rather unexpected, curious move.
Scribe R.F.I. Porto, who wrote the screenplay for the film will adapt his own script into what will apparently be a graphic novel prequel, which will serve as a companion to the film, giving readers further insight into the background and motivations of the film’s lead characters John Allen Muhammad (Washington) and Lee Boyd Malvo, played by Tequan Richmond.
The graphic novel, expected to be published in the coming months, will be part of a new true crime series from publisher Red Giant, called Public Enemies.
Blue Caprice was co-produced by Ron Simons (SimonSays Entertainment), and is based on the story of the real-life Beltway sniper attacks of 2002. The film opened in a limited release in September, and continues to gradually expand. Although it’s available on iTunes for those whose cities it has yet to reach.
