Shock Till You Drop is reporting that High Moon, one of DC's premiere web-only comics, is being turned into a motion picture to be executive produced by John Woo.
Part of DC's Zuda web-comics imprint, High Moon debuted last November, and is, as you've probably guessed, a tale of werewolves in the Old West. Written by David Gallaher and drawn by Steve Ellis, it can be read at Zuda.com.
The film adaptation will reunite Batman Begins' Cillian "Scarecrow" Murphy and the always-excellent Rutger Hauer, and will also star Sean Bean, a.k.a. Boromir of The Lord of the Rings.
The project is interestingly described as a cross between The Lost Boys and The Magnificent Seven. I'm not particularly familiar with the source material, although I was a big fan of the Old West incarnation of Ghost Rider, another horror/western comic.
Shooting is set to begin in August.
