Continuum attended the recent MegaCon in Orlando, where CrossGen updated

fans on the status of their movie slate. Branded Entertainment producer Michael

Uslan, who is shepherding all CrossGen properties into film and television,

provided these highlights:

WAY OF THE RAT, SCION, CRUX

Writer/director/producer Chuck Russell ("The Scorpion King") is

expected to turn in a script for "The Way of the Rat" this week. Uslan

expects this to be the first CrossGen film to go into production.

Russell will also develop "Scion" as a feature, following

"Rat." He is also developing "Crux" for television.

Chuck Dixon will co-write a pilot script with the filmmaker.

ROUTE 666

Uslan told fans to expect a screenwriter announcement on "Route

666" soon. Robert Zemeckis is producing this one for DreamWorks.

SIGIL, MYSTIC

Both "Sigil" and "Mystic," previously announced as

television projects, are now being developed as feature films.

Threshold Entertainment is behind "Sigil" while Wes Craven's

production shingle is working on "Mystic."

THE CROSSOVERS, THE FIRST

CrossGen is in final negotiations to bring both "The Crossovers"

and "The First" to television.

Davis Entertainment would be the partner for a live-action, prime-time television series based on "The Crossovers." Davis is currently

developing the live-action/animated "Garfield" movie. Uslan expects an announcement on a showrunner soon.

New Line Television would be working on "The First," a concept that Uslan describes as "The West Wing of the Gods."

BRATH, NEGATION

Tom Lassally and Giant Robot Entertainment are in final negotiations on a feature film of "Brath."

Former Warner Bros. studio chief Lorenzo di Bonaventura is on board to produce a big-screen version of "Negation." Uslan said that this one would be a "very, very big picture."
