Channing Tatum To Adapt Comic "The Maxx".

Channing Tatum and Roy Lee are teaming to adapt Sam Kieth's cult comic "The Maxx".

Created by Kieth and launching via Image Comics in 1993, The Maxx revolves around the titular character, who exists both in the real world and an alternate reality/dream world known as the Outback.

The title character of The Maxx is a masked hero who protects the Jungle Queen in the Outback, a realm that resembles primordial Australia, but he also exists in our world as a homeless man whose masked face and fantastical mutterings are dismissed as mental illness.

Tatum will produce through his Free Association, along with principals Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan. Lee will produce though his Vertigo Entertainment. Sam Kieth, who created the series in the 1990s, will also produce with partner Tal Vigderson.
