Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.21.08] Tuvalu movie news cyberpunk comic



If you're not immediately familiar with The Many Worlds of Jonas Moore, it might be because you're not sitting in Europe right now. The online graphic novel, which began over a year ago, has become quite a sensation abroad. Indeed, MGM's Domestic Television team has picked up the rights to the property based on its growing worldwide appeal in the hopes that it could take off in North America as a television series. The Many Worlds of Jonas Moore is a trilogy set in a time where the British Empire has never ended and America is just a virtual world hosted on a vast global game network, Jonas Moore, a character personally created by the network's founder, is thrown into a world where characters, creatures and monsters are all slaves to the gamers from the real world. After checking out the novel online, I was surprised that it stars Colin Salmon, an amazing British actor who has been in everything from BBC television to Resident Evil, to AVP, to Match Point. Much has been said about the novel's unique look but I for one am not all that fond of it. The combo of live action and green screen animation looks promising if a little amateurish. If they copy the style for the show, I hope it gets a bit more money thrown at it. Links and video after the break.

You are right AO, the look isn't that impressive and the trailer doesn't show what most would expect, especially if you are a fan of the graphic novel. If you have any contact with the creators of the series mention on itsy bitsy piece of information to them, ROTOSCOPE, ROTOSCOPE, ROTSCOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think the whole thing is quite ropey to be honest. Concept, script, plot and visuals. And I think its 'fame' is very overstated. Haven't a clue what Salmon or MGM see in it. But maybe a diamond will emerge from the rough?!
