'Twilight' Studio Picks Up 'Alibi' Adaptation
Flush from the success of “Twilight” and its sequel “New Moon,” Summit Entertainment has picked up the film rights for Top Cow’s “Alibi.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, John Hlavin (“The Shield”) is onboard to write the adaptation. Halvin was also recently tapped to write the fourth “Underworld” film. “Alibi” co-creator and Top Cow President Matt Hawkins is also attached as an executive producer, along with Marc Silvestri.
An “Alibi” one shot written by Joshua Hale Fialkov with art by Jeremy Haun was published last year as part of Top Cow’s Pilot Season. The story follows a wealthily playboy named John Stephens whose high profile social life serves as the perfect cover for his twin brother Rick — a top-secret government assassin. The concept was created by Hawkins and Michael Renegar.
