A ‘Spencer & Locke’ Film Is in Development

The Action Lab Entertainment comic Spencer & Locke is officially being developed into a film by Adrian Askarieh and his company Prime Universe Films. Written by David Pepose with art by Jorge Santiago Jr, the crime comic follows Detective Locke solving crimes with an unconventional partner — his childhood imaginary friend, a giant talking panther.

It’s a neat idea, but needless to say I’m a little worried about how the story would translate from the comic page to the screen.

Adrian Askarieh is probably best known for producing the Hitman movies, which weren’t exactly… good. I’ll have more faith in the project when we find out who’s going to be writing the script or directing the film.

It also goes without saying that this is still very early days for a project like this, and like many properties optioned for film, we may never end up hearing about this again. I mean, when’s the last time we heard anything about the Cowboy Ninja Viking movie?

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.”
