And today at New York Comic Con, Legion M announced plans for Girl With No Name, a female-led western action-adventure movie produced by Co-Op Entertainment’s Laura Ivey (Walking Out, Ithaca) and directed by Co-Op cofounder Tanya Wexler (Hysteria). Legion M is the project’s executive producer.
Set in 1869 Wild West, The Girl With No Name universe will first be introduced in Spring 2019 as a special 40-page comic book published by Legion M called A1Shot, developed by Dave Elliott at AtomekART. A1Shot is a ground-breaking oversized, heavy stock comic book format. The name refers to Elliott’s classic comics anthology series from the eighties and nineties, A1.
The franchise’s female-led creative team extends to the comic, headed by world-renowned comic artist Tula Lotay (Supreme: Blue Rose) doing the Girl With No Name promotional poster and cover art, and comic artist Dani Strips (2000AD) creating the book’s interiors.
“We are thrilled to bring Girl With No Name to life – both as a feature film and in the pages of a revolutionary comic book led by a group of incredibly brilliant artists, and we’re proud to have the franchise star a strong female lead developed by a team of extremely talented women,” said Terri Lubaroff, Chief Operating Officer and head of content, Legion M. “Girl With No Name is particularly special for Legion M as the title represents our first foray into publishing, and we’re executive producing our second feature film with Co-Op Entertainment as an amazing partner.”
