This is cool! Variety is reporting that fan-fave filmmaker John Landis will direct "GHOULISHLY YOURS, WILLIAM M. GAINES," a biopic based on the life of the publisher of EC Comics and Mad magazine! EC Comics was of course the publisher that brought us TALES FROM THE CRYPT! The article also states that Landis will develop the project with Joel Eisenberg, who’s also penning the screenplay. More details below!
The Variety article reports, "Pic’s centered on an anti-establishment group of artists and writers, led by a reluctant Gaines and cohort Al Feldstein, as they produce their comicbooks. At the peak of his success, Gaines became a First Amendment figurehead due to his unapologetic testimony before a Senate subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency."
