SDCC: Sam Raimi Attached to Earp: Saints and Sinners

Heat Vision is reporting that Acclaimed Director Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Evil Dead) is attached to direct the film adaptation of the newly released comic-book mini-series Earp: Saints and Sinners.

 The "comic" is a new futuristic retelling of the showdown at the O.K. Corral. The site for the comic goes into more detail.

 After losing his brother, Virgil, during the arrest of outlaw Jesse James, Earp is ready for a major lifestyle change. Craving simplicity and wanting to protect his younger brother, Morgan, from the same fate as Virgil, Wyatt looks west. Leaving New York and his Marshal badge behind, he settles in Las Vegas to run an upscale saloon with his best friend and ex-partner, Doc Holliday. The city presents new opportunities and faces, but it isn’t long before old enemies and scars return, as well. Once again, he must enforce the law and bring justice to criminal entrepreneur Edward Flynn, Flynn’s personal army “the Pinkertons,” and Jesse James’ own “James Gang.” On top of this, the complicated love triangle between talented starlet, Josephine Marcus, and sworn enemies, Wyatt Earp and Jesse James, also wreaks havoc on Earp’s life.

DreamWorks has bought the Radical Studios comic with plans plan to have Sam Raimi direct and have Matt Cirulnick write the script.

There is also a Comic-Con panel for Radical Publishing Creator's on Thursday. So maybe we will get some more news on the subject then.

Let the Comic-Con news start rolling. This week will be a busy one for us.
