     March 11, 2011


Lionel Wigram, who produced Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes and was an executive producer on the Harry Potter series, has grabbed the rights to Jeff Smith’s sci-fic comic series RASL. The series centers on a former military scientist who becomes an art thief with the ability to go to parallel worlds. Variety reports that Smith, who previously wrote the comic series Bone, will produce the film version of RASL alongside Wigram. No stranger to comics himself, Warner Bros.-based Wigram wrote the comic series that spawned the Sherlock Holmes reboot, and subsequently wrote the screenplay to that film.
