I am a San Diego filmmaker who has been a fan of Matt Wagner's Grendel series since it began back in the 80's. I have also waited patiently for it to be made into a movie. Apparently it was optioned back in 2005 by Warner Brothers, but the way Hollywood functions I will be surprised if it is ever made.
Since it appears to be in production limbo, I have taken it upon myself to do a short movie based on it. The story revolves around the final hours of Hunter Rose as told from his grand-daughter Christine Spar's point of view. The fight sequence will be provided by John Duza and James Flores of X-Force Self Defense (http://www.youtube.com/user/XForceSelfDefense).
A few scenes have already been shot. You can follow our progress here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Matt-W...91448127538314.
Upon completion it will be put up on YouTube for all to see.
Wish us all luck.
