The Book Of Eli
I've always had a soft spot for post-apocalyptic tales, be they in literature or on the big screen, and I really like the look of this one. It marks the return of the Hughes Brothers who I met several times while they were making From Hell and later interviewed for Premiere over an expensive and highly entertaining dinner at Mr Chow's in London. It's written by an ex-film journalist turned screenwriter by the name of Gary Whitta, a Brit who nows lives in the US. And it was through Whitta that talented British comic book artist Chris Weston became involved in the project, taking time out from illustrating The Twelve to storyboard the movie (see examples below). You can read about Weston's involvement on his blog here.
