That’s right: Max Minor’s beloved comic book (though I have a sneaking suspicion he just likes Gerard Way) The Umbrella Academy has been optioned for a film adaptation with a projected release date of 2012. Normally this wouldn’t catch my eye, but Alfonso Cuaron has been attached to direct. You might know him from his work directing the kid-friendly Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, or perhaps the graphic sex-filled Y tu mama tambien, or my favorite, his most recent, the mind-blowingly awesome Children of Men. With such a talented director, I think the movie could be promising. Also, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there could be more graphic sex.
Umbrella Academy movie, eventually.
