Latest Comic Book Movie: Magdalena

from andPOP

Comingsoon.net reports that Platinum Studios and Valhalla Motion Pictures are teaming up to turn Top Cow's comic Magdalena into a feature film. Kevin Taft, who is writing the upcoming New Line Cinema scarefest Alone, will pen the script.

Magdalena, a fan favourite in the Top Cow library, will be the first religious-themed comic book character to be adapted for film. It's the story of a girl named Patience who discovers that she's descended from a line of women warriors that traces its ancestry to Mary Magdalene. Because this is a comic book, Patience must then a) accept her destiny, and b) save the world. The comic has been translated into 26 languages in 55 countries.

"Magdalena is exactly the kind of project we love: a strong female lead character, a story with rich mythology, and compelling characters," says producer Gale Anne Hurd, whose projects include The Terminator and Aeon Flux. "The religious overtone adds a new dimension to the adventure story."

Comic creator and Top Cow Productions CEO Marc Silvestri will executive produce. "The need for faith in any form is what Magdalena is about," said Silvestri. "Patience's journey is, ultimately, about having faith in something - God, a loved one, or the human condition and the need to believe in something that is greater than ourselves."

MESSAGE #2809 from the Blessed Mother


September 1, 2005

My daughter,
More prayer is needed because many, many are suffering all around the world. Many will continue to suffer because they do not have a relationship with Jesus. Much has been taken away to wake mankind. Man cannot rely on their material possessions for happiness. They must depend on God for all their needs.

Man must turn to God and repent, repent of their evil ways. All must get down on their knees and implore God’s mercy. All must prepare their soul so they are ready to face God. God is truly waking His children because so many continue to live in darkness. God is allowing these messages so more take heed to the Gospel. God has chosen many Priests and many messengers to make the Gospel known.

Are my children truly listening, listening to God? Are my children truly living these messages? One must answer for themselves and then change in those areas where they are weak. All must obey each Commandment. All must strive to live a pure and holy life. All must believe that Heaven is their true home. All must obey God’s Commandments and live, live the Beatitudes. One will not see Heaven if they deny that God exists.

Dear children, time is running out because sin has become widespread. All must turn to God and repent of their sins. All will be tested and without a strong faith, you will not survive. This is the time of God’s great mercy. This is the time of purification, so I say to my children, prepare, prepare, prepare your soul. Amen.
