“Dark City” helmer Alex Proyas to adapt Mike Mignola’s “Joe Golem and the Drowning City”

Joe Golem and the Drowning City

Posted by on

Comic book movie-related news out of Comic-Con continues to arrive fast and furious this week, with reports now that “Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden’s “Joe Golem and the Drowning City” has been tapped by director Alex Proyas for a live-action feature.

Deadline reports the graphic novel will receive the Hollywood treatment courtesy of the visionary filmmaker, celebrated by genre fans for such films as “Dark City” and “I, Robot.” The project would mark the second comic book adaptation for Proyas, after 1994’s gothic tale “The Crow.”

“Joe Golem and the Drowning City” takes place in an steampunk-ish alternate history where New York City sank into the ocean in the mid-1920s. Since then, it’s been transformed into a Venice-like metropolis of canals. The book follows a young teenage girl named Molly McHugh and her companion Felix Orlov, a magician-turned-psychic who is abducted by masked men when a seance goes wrong. She then meets a mysterious man and his sidekick Joe Golem, a creature brought to life to battle witches.

In Judaism, the monster-esque golem is comprised of mud and was traditionally created to help fight persecution of the Jews. The word is mentioned in the Talmud and has been referenced during biblical times as well as throughout medieval history.

The project is the second property from Mignola to see its way to theaters. The first, “Hellboy,” spawned two feature films directed by Guillermo del Toro.

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
