Fans of Garth Ennis’ demented “Crossed” series have wanted to see it in live action for some time, but due to it’s violent and brutal nature, it seemed unlikely. Ennis addressed the issue right away at his spotlight panel at NYCC alongside William Christensen. Christensen said that Garth Ennis will be writing and directing a series of live-action “Crossed” webisodes, to be followed by a “Crossed” feature film, also written and directed by Ennis. The plan is to begin production in fall of 2013.
Garth Ennis mentioned that this comes from a desire to expand his creative scope, and to deliver a feature film of “Crossed”. Christensen added that they thought the best way to do a film was to have it reflect Ennis’ original vision, and now it will, “No studio BS.”
Ennis said that the webisodes will be “little vignettes” offering insight into the world of “Crossed.” Christensen said, “We won’t be doing a relaunch every two years. You won’t see ’52 Crossed.”
