Reginald Hudlin to Direct ‘Shadowman’ Movie

New life has been breathed into the film adaptation of Valiant Comics’ Shadowman, as its been announced that director Reginald Hudlin is now attached to the project. Hudlin will and writer Adam Simon are reworking a script originally written by J. Michael Straczynski.

The Shadowman comic follows Jack Boniface, an African-American saxophone player in New Orleans, who ends up being infected by a spirit and gaining supernatural abilities. Using these powers, he has to protect the world from a bunch of bad guys – y’know, like you do.

Okay, so that’s a gross oversimplification that leaves out a lot of key details, but it’s close enough. In any case, should this thing make it to screen, it would an interesting (and fairly different) superhero film than the ones we’ve gotten lately.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
