Release date set for a film based on Warren Ellis' Red.
And, as noted, no mention of Warren, creator and writer of the original comic, in the Variety article. It's a "DC/Wildstorm comic". Much like a movie based on a novel is always described as, say "a movie based on the Random House Book Angels and Demons." Prats.
Luckily, Variety just did a nine page interview with Mark Millar explaining how Red is just further evidence of his own coming dominance of All Media, so we have that.
