'El Zombo Fantasma' Comic to Hit Big Screen!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Death Ray Films and Maya Entertainment are set to bring the Dark Horse Comic 'El Zombo Fantasma' to theaters. Published in 2005, the comic centers on a murdered Mexican wrestler (please say Jack Black, please say Jack Black) who returns from the dead to help out a troubled teenager in Los Angeles (OK, you had me and now you just lost me). In addition to the feature film, there are hopes to create a franchise including an animated series (which sounds like pretty cool Saturday morning fare) a la Hellboy.. Jose Martinez of Maya and Kellvin Chavez, who runs the Web site Latino Review, also are producing. "It furthers our goal of bringing Latino themes and Latino talent to the commercial market," Martinez said. "We plan to blow this out in a big way." Sounds cool, and more reason to check out the comic if you haven’t already.
