"The Sadhu" eyed for the big screen

Variety reports that Virgin Comics is adapting “The Sadhu” into a movie starring Nicolas Cage. Spiritual author and Virgin Comics co-founder Deepak Chopra is writing the script.

As has been reported before, Cage is also creating a comic-book series for Virgin with his teenage son, Weston. Variety calls it “a voodoo-laced thriller.”

I asked Bargain Comics’ Mike Coco the other week about sales of the Virgin line. They’re certainly not up to “52” and “Civil War” numbers, he said, but the sales are pretty good and the line seems to be drawing in some folks new to comics.
