Lions Gate Pursues Comic Book Villain

Lions Gate Films is in final negotiations for the domestic and international distribution rights for the dark comedy ensemble film Comic Book Villain, starring DJ Qualls, Danny Masterson (That '70s Show), Cary Elwes (Princess Bride), Donal Logue and Michael Rapaport (Cop Land), Natasha Lyonne (American Pie) and Monet Mazur (Angel Eyes). The story is shown through the perspective of Archie, a passionate comic book collector (Qualls), who patronizes two comic stores. One owner (Logue) totally loves the business while the other store is run by a husband-and-wife team (Rapaport and Lyonne) who are only interested in money. Problems begin when the sneaky Conan (Masterson) finds a pristine collection of classic comics and tells both sets of owners, who vie for the collection. Meanwhile, the villainous Carter (Elwes) is scheming with his girlfriend (Mazur) to steal the comic books. Comic Book Villain is currently in production.
