Beckinsale in Whiteout comic adaption

Whiteout.jpgThe graphic novels entitled Whiteout, written by Greg Rucka and drawn by Steve Lieber, is set to become a film adapted by Erich and Jon Hoeber, directed by Dominic Sena and possibly starring Kate Beckinsale who is currently in negotiations to headline.

Sena was previously responsible for Swordfish (great fun), Gone in Sixty Seconds (not great fun) and the not bad Kalifornia, so there's a mixed bag there. The Hoebers are the writers behind the latest film outing for Alice in Wonderland starring Sarah Michelle Gellar as, well who else but Alice.

The story comes from Production Weekly and together with Wikipedia gives us the plot. It follows the US Marshal Carrie Stetko working at McMurdo Station in Antartica during her investigation of a murder which happens just as Alaska begins months of darkness.

Originally it seems that Reese Witherspoon was tipped for the lead, but it looks like Beckinsale has the market cornered on comic book heroines now.

Thanks to some kind chap on Wikipedia and those behind the comic themselves, you can actually download the two parts and read them in PDF format. Part one and Part two.



That IS an interesting mix of films and 2 out of 3 ain't bad - throw in Beckinsale and this could definately have potential.
