CBR’s Coverage of ComicCon-2011
July 22, 2011
Friday morning, Roman Dirge announced at his spotlight panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego that writer Neil Gaiman would be serving as the executive producer on a film adaptation of the comic series “Lenore.”
“One day, I cold-wrote Neil Gaiman out of the blue,” Dirge told the assembled audience. “I apparently had drunkenly sent him a script of my version of ‘Lenore.’ Some people drunk tweet or drunk call, I drunk script,” Dirge laughed. Gaiman read the script and liked it enough to attach himself as executive producer. “He’s going out to find a director right now,” Dirge said.
