My name is Dan. This this where I write about various pop culture things, and sometimes there's some personal stuff thrown in there too. I love movies, comics and photography. Every now and then I post a picture or two. Enjoy.

Evan Dorkin & Jill Thompson ‘Beasts of Burden’ to Big Screen
Dark Horse comic Beasts of Burden is heading to the big-screen with Shrek and Chronicles of Narnia director Andrew Adamson leading the charge.
Adamson is producing what is intended to be a CG-animated feature adaptation with his Strange Weather Films partner Aron Warner along with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.
Burden is being made by Reel FX, the company run by former Industrial Light and Magic senior executive Ed Jones and former Walden Media CEO Cary Granat, and that specializes in CG as well as live-action hybrid projects.
Burden is set in a community called Burden Hill where a series of supernatural events occur, causing a gang of dogs (and one cat) to team up in order to keep their owners and the town’s residents safe.
Evan Dorkin (Milk & Cheese) and Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother) created the characters, which first appeared in The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings, Witchcraft, the Dead and Monsters, and earned the duo Eisner Awards for best short story and best painter.
Dark Horse Entertainment’s Keith Goldberg is executive producing with Strange Weather’s Jeff Fierson co-producing. Reel FX’s head of feature development Jared Mass will oversee the project for the studio.
Burden is seen as a return to the animation world for Adamson and Warner, who directed and produced several of DreamWorks’ successful Shrek movies before moving into the world of The Chronicles of Narnia film adaptations. (via:THR)
This is terrific News! ‘Beasts of Burden’ is an amazing comic and it’s so great to see a non-super hero property being adapted into a movie. Between this and the talk of Grant Morrison’s ‘WE3’ being turned into a movie, I’m so happy. I love superhero films but there’s too many of them this summer. It’s about time Hollywood started looking at adapting properties that are less convention than what Marvel & DC are offering. The ‘Beasts of Burden: Animal Rights’ hardcover by Evan Dorkin & Jill Thompson is one of the best trades I have on my shelves. I encourage everyone to read it since it’s a book great for comic fans, mystery fans and animal lovers. It’ an absolutely amazing comic and one i can’t wait to see make its transition to the big-screen.
