Twentieth Century Fox has picked up the movie rights to Mind MGMT, a Dark Horse comic book by indie darling Matt Kindt, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Alien and Prometheus‘ Ridley Scott is producing via his Fox-based Scott Free banner, along with Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg. Kindt is the writer and artist behind several acclaimed graphic novels and webcomics. “Mind MGMT,” launched last year, is his first ongoing series.
“The book centers on a government agency consisting of psychic spies and their greatest asset, Henry Lime. After he suffers a breakdown and loses control of his abilities, causing the populace of a town to kill one another, he goes on the run. Several years later, a true-crime author named Meru, who was part of a flight where everyone mysteriously developed amnesia, is saved by Lime and begins to investigate the agency, uncovering her own secret connection to it.”
A search for a writer to adapt is under way. READ MORE

“Mind MGMT” follows Henry Lime, who is the top agent for a government agency of psychic spies. After suffering from a breakdown, Lime causes the entire town to kill one another. Lime resurfaces years later, when he saves Meru, a true crime novelist who begins to investigate the mysterious agency. READ MORE
The fifth installment of Matt Kindt’s Mind MGMT breaks with the pattern established in the previous four issues by welcoming readers into the mind of the series’ main character, Meru. The switch feels perfectly natural considering the narrative arc that Kindt has created. Once Meru has followed the bread crumbs leading to the elusive Henry Lyme, it makes sense that we are introduced to her internal monologue just as she begins to realize the depth of her own involvement in the ongoing saga of “Mind MGMT”.

There are books that deserve to be re-read because of their, “what-the-eff-just-happened-I’m-not-sure-but-it-was-completely-kick-ass,” factor. Mind MGMT is undoubtedly this type of book. As a new title, released by Dark Horse and written by Matt Kindt, it is highly entertaining, engaging, and thought provoking. After just the second issue I went stumbling back to the first issue for a re-read. Even the cover of issue 2# holds intricate details that might be missed with only a cursory glance. For those of you haven’t seen the cover (or have and didn’t notice) there are a multitude of words hidden in the stitches on the mysterious character’s face: “power, murder, hate, grudge” and fittingly around the throat is, “choke.” READ MORE
