If a comic book is based on real life, and a movie is based on that comic book, is it still a comic book movie? Especially when the events depicted only took place a few years ago, and the protagonists are still very much alive and well?
These questions only come up because Bluewater Productions and Hayden 5 Media recently announced that they are preparing a film based on Bluewater’s upcoming adaptation of the life of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, titled “Mark Zuckerberg and the Found.” Which sounds more like a children’s story, a similarity compounded even further by the fact that this film will be animated, though more akin to Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly than any Disney or Dreamworks film.
No release date on the film, but the comic itself has yet to be released—check your local comic shop in late December.
