“Shadowman is a character who lives in a unique world that mixes the modern world with that which is most ancient within us,” said Straczynski. “The New Orleans vibe and history, and the struggle to find a balance with the personality within him, is a perfect dramatic vehicle. We’ve already finished the outline and there’s a lot of action, much of it unique to what Shadowman can do…but at the core of it, there’s a strong character, world and mythology that can be explored across multiple subsequent films. This is gonna be fun."
Valiant CEO Jason Kothari also had this to say: "Shadowman is the first in a large slate of film projects that we are developing and funding internally at Valiant."
