Chiklis Heading To Olympus
FANTASTIC FOUR star MICHAEL CHIKLIS is creating a graphic novel series based on the Greek gods.Olympus will follow the story of ancient Greek deities who return to a ravaged, chaotic present-day Earth where they battle against the Titans for the future of mankind.
Chiklis' Extravaganza Productions will oversee the development of the books, based on the work of Anny Simon Beck, in a deal with IDW Publishing.
And Chiklis hopes the graphic novels will eventually be turned into a TV show or movie.
He tells Daily Variety, "As a kid, I was always fascinated by the Greek gods, so the chance to bring my childhood heroes and villains to life in the modern world is irresistible."
