To coincide with Comic Con, Radical Publishing has just announced that Sam Raimi will be producing and directing the comic book adaptation of Earp: Saints For Sinners.  Not familiar with Earp?  The story is an alternative take on the legendary lawman, Wyatt Earp.  While the real Wyatt Earp lived in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, the comic book is set in present time where the economy has collapsed and the the politicians are corrupt.  Most of the story takes place in Las Vegas.

EARP 0 Sam Raimis Next Movie: Earp

Sam Raimi has directed a western before in Quick And The Dead and that was okay.  Nothing really stood out from the movie but it was watchable.  Earp is I think more in Raimi’s territory because it’s part Western and part fantasy.  The characters will probably be intentionally campy and Earp has something is common with Ash: The boomstick!

EARP: SAINTS FOR SINNERS #0 is currently available to purchase for the premiere price of $1.00.
