The director of The Losers talks about his work in developing the movie adaptation of Frank Miller’s Ronin.
White had this to say at Superhero Hype:
"It’s a very complex graphic novel and it needs very careful attention. Of course to make a movie of that scale, you need a lot of money to pay it justice, especially with the incredible visuals that Frank Miller has in it, but at the same time, in order to get a lot of money to make the movie, it has to have enough commercial appeal, so I’m trying to balance those two things together to make the movie accessible but still smart and throw with all the great ideas and grand ideas that it has. Conceptually, it’s such an amazing property, so I think it’s strong appeal in that sense, and even for people, I think visually in the trailer, people will be gravitating towards that kind of subject matter and that kind of character, it’s amazing."
"I’m taking my time with it. If I’m able to stay on it and develop it the way I want, I just want it to be done right. I don’t want to rush it or anything like that. I want the right writer on it and it to be done carefully. So that is one of the projects I have in development."
The Losers will be in theaters April 23rd.
