Coheed And Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about his plans to bring his graphic novel series The Amory Wars to the big screen. Earlier this year he and his Evil Ink Comics imprint teamed up with Mark Wahlberg (The Departed; producer of “Entourage” and “Boardwalk Empire”), Leverage and producer Stephen Levinson ( “Entourage”,”Boardwalk Empire” and Contraband).
Sanchez said it’s not 100% full steam yet, “It’s very preliminary stages. Because the mythology is very dense and a lot of parts are already created … it’s just trying to find the right starting point to get people attracted to it.”
The story of The Amory Wars is set in Heaven’s Fence, a fantasy universe run by a tyrannical dictator named Wilhelm Ryan, and is inspired by Sanchez’s vast conceptual tale surrounding Coheed and Cambria’s albums. “I’d love to see the band’s music make a cameo. Not necessarily as the soundtrack but as Stan Lee does for the Marvel movies maybe the music could pop in once in a while.”
Sanchez plans on being hands-on with the story, “Being the creator I’d certainly like to think [I’ll be very involved in the movie],” he says. “That’s certainly our understanding going forward in the partnership.” And, he thinks it could be a bit. “It’s a universal story and I think it’s going to draw a bigger audience than just the band’s. I think it has already.”
More on this as it comes in. Fans of the graphic novel, are you psyched for this version?
