Lee´s 7th Portal Opens In Theatres
Stan Lee Media has announced a teaming with producer Mark Canton (RED PLANET), which will bring a live-action version of the Internet animated series 7TH PORTAL to the big screen. With no studio yet attached, Canton plans to take the project to Warner Bros. where he has a production deal. Currently, Canton is set to produce the feature with Stan Lee Media co-founders Stan Lee and Peter Paul serving as executive producers. Canton told the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, "The opportunity to work on the new characters and stories created by Stan Lee is about as exciting as one can imagine. This guy stood the test of time. His creations such as THE X-MEN, SPIDER-MAN and THE HULK are all taking new lives of their own in Hollywood, having either wrapped production or about to go into production." Paul said, "At the inception of Stan Lee Media earlier this year, we said we wanted to develop global entertainment franchises that would be born on the Internet and deployed in all other media." Recently, Stan Lee Media signed a deal with Paramount Parks to create "Stan Lees 7th Portal 3D Simulation Experience" attraction. If successfully finding a home, the 7TH PORTAL feature will mark the third title to jump from the Internet to other media outlets. John Ridleys UNDERCOVER BROTHER, aired on Urban Media, is being turned into a live-action feature and Mondo Medias THUGS ON FILMS is becoming a animated TV series for BBC America. The cyber eggs are hatching!
