Terry Moore's Strangers in Paradise is headed to the big screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman writer-director Angela Robinson is developing the film alongside Moore himself.
Moore launched Strangers in Paradise back in 1993 and the series ran until 2007, when it ended on Volume 3 issue #90. The series follows Katina Marie "Katchoo" Choovanski and Helen Francine Peters, who goes by "Francine." The two women find themselves in a love triangle, where Katchoo is in love with Francine and another friend David is in love with Katchoo. The love triangle develops into an even larger plot when Katchoo's history and her former boss catch up to her, looking for a large sum of missing mob money. The title -- which bounced between Antarctic Press, Image Comics and Abstract Studio over its run -- has won both an Eisner Award and the GLAAD Award.
"Angela and I have known each other for years, and I greatly admire her creative vision," Moore said. "From day one, our common goal was to bring Strangers in Paradise to the screen. It's a complex story that took years to write, and Angela gets it on every level. I can't wait to get started!"
"I've been wanting to adapt Strangers in Paradise for over a decade, since the first time I read it and couldn't put it down," Robinson shared. "Terry Moore writes real female characters with such breathtaking sensitivity. With Strangers in Paradise, he pulls off the nearly impossible -- a sexy, stylish crime story with tons of heart. I look forward to our collaboration!"
Strangers in Paradise does not yet have a release date.
