Newsarama Aphrodite IX film news
Announced to be in consideration for a feature film a couple of years back, Top Cow’s Aphrodite IX looks to finally be moving forward, this according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Together with Threshold Entertainment and Platinum Studios, Top Cow is looking to adapt the Aphrodite IX comic into a 3-D feature film. The story of Aphrodite IX centers on a green-haired cyborg assassin who becomes self-aware, and thus begins a search for her origins. While the original comic was set in the future the character has recently been more deeply incorporated into the Top Cow Universe with its precursor, Aphrodite IV making an appearance in Witchblade. The character first appeared in 1996 and was written by David Wohl with art by David Finch.
