Ghoulishly Yours (NEWS)

Word has it that John Landis will direct "Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines," a biopic based on the life of the publisher of EC Comics and Mad Magazine. Landis will develop the project with Joel Eisenberg, who's also penning the screenplay. There’s still very little info as of yet about this but you can read the entire Variety article HERE.

Sounds interesting,love to see the cast(Drew Carey for Bill? Amy Adams as his wife Nancy? Joe Mantegna as Al Feldstein? Robert Englund as Fredric Wertham?).

>Drew Carey for Bill?

Oh god lets hope not... how about Eric Wareheim?

Wareheim would be perfect! Knowing our luck Landis will get James Belushi though.

The idea of a Gaines bio pic is great, and I'm sure Landis loves those old ECs, but is he really the right director for this? I have my doubts. I don't want this to go straight to DVD. I want this on the big screen.
