Bei Latino Review gibt es ein Interview mit den Produzenten Adrian Askarieh und Daniel Alter...
[...] What about ‘The Lost Squad’ is that on the back burner because of the strike?
Askarieh: No. Actually, I don’t really want to comment on it in terms of the strike, but we have a good script in. We have two fantastic young filmmakers, they are extremely visual, and they are in the vein of the Wachowski brothers. Stephen St. Leger and James Mather is their name. they did this short called ‘Prey Alone’. They have come up with this great script for ‘Lost Squad’. The visual plans they have shown us for the movie is really unlike anything. You will see World War II in a way that you are not used to seeing it. It’s the hyper stylized, the way ‘300’, re-imagined. That’s what these guys can do with World War II.
Alter: Yeah, you’ve never seen World War like this.
Askarieh: Imagine a World War II movie with supernatural, hardcore action, that today’s video game generation is going to flock to see. That’s what we are doing with ‘The Lost Squad’. [...]
Stephen St. Leger and James Mather have found their way to "The Lost Squad," coming on board to write and direct the project for Rogue Pictures. Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter are producing.
"Squad" is based on a Devil's Due comic written by Chris Kirby and drawn by Alan Robinson. The miniseries revolved around the supernatural action-adventures of a squad of U.S. soldiers who take on weird missions during World War II, fighting Adolf Hitler's occult agents and other threats.
Devil's Due Josh Blaylock is co-producing.
Andrew Rona, Andrew Deutschman and Alex Heineman will oversee.
The duo, known and Saint & Mather, are based in Ireland; St. Leger is a commercial director, Mather is a director of photography. The pair are riding into Hollywood on buzz created by "Prey Alone," a high-octane 15-minute short they made digitally using actors and some hand props. It is that technique, similar to the fashion of how "300" was made, that they plan to use in making "Squad." [...]
Rogue Pictures has picked up the comic book "Lost Squad," with Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter on board as producers. Written by Chris Kirby and drawn by Alan Robinson, the miniseries revolves around the supernatural action adventures of a squad of American soldiers who take on weird missions during World War II, fighting Adolf Hitler's occult agents and other threats. The first issue was published by Devil's Due in fall 2005. The latest is scheduled to hit shelves next month. A search is on for a writer to adapt.
Bei PopMatters gibt es eine Kritik zur ersten Ausgabe der Comic-Serie...
[...] In the end, how does Lost Squad measure up to the movies it was compared to in the publicist's letter? The most accurate comparison is the Indiana Jones one. The book has the same non-stop, edge of your seat pacing that the Indiana Jones films have, and Indy had to rescue his fair share of supernatural items from the Nazis. However, Lost Squad has more in common with Sgt. Rock than The Dirty Dozen, and the book takes itself less seriously and is more fun than your average X-Files episode.
Overall, Lost Squad is a fun, fast-paced read, an enjoyable departure from the usual comic book fare. It doesn't quite live up to its TV and movie comparisons, but for those who enjoy tales of the supernatural and Nazis (and who doesn't?) it serves its purpose.
