Jonas MooreMGM Domestic Television Distribution has announced that they have acquired the rights to the digital graphic novel The Many Worlds of Jonas Moore and will look into possibly developing it as a TV series.

The Many Worlds of Jonas Moore is set in a time where the British Empire has never ended and America is just one of thousands of virtual worlds hosted on a vast global game network. When Jonas Moore (portrayed online by British film and TV star Colin SalmonResident Evil, Die Another Day and the upcoming Punisher: War Zone), a character personally created by the network’s founder, becomes self-aware, he is tagged by the network as a virus and goes on the run. As he moves from one artificial game world to the next, his knowledge of the games and the real-world gamers spreads like a virus to the other game characters, freaks, creatures and monsters who live as slaves within the network — precipitating a revolution and fight for freedom against the murderously addicted real-world gamers. Worlds Apart lead singer Steve Hart wrote the score for the production and also stars in the online version.

Creator, director, and producer Howard Webster said this about MGM’s acquisition:

There has never been a black British action hero before and what appealed to me was that MGM understood this from the outset. Jonas Moore is sophisticated, educated, tough and uber-cool. He represents the next generation of intelligent action heroes of international sci-fi drama.

No word on if the cast of actual actors from the comic will be cast in the potential TV series for MGM, but I have to assume it would be the best way to approach it.

The property started as a digital graphic novel — called second-generation graphic novels — trilogy, which is like watching a comic book, but instead of drawn characters, it’s actual actors and it moves and such. The project is getting so much positive attention overseas that MGM decided to scoop it up immediately. Below is the specific description, followed by a video that will give you an idea of what a “digital graphic novel” looks like.

Combining comic book illustration with 3D animation, live action photography, newsreel archival footage, and an original music score, THE MANY WORLDS OF JONAS MOORE marks a revolution in online branded entertainment and user-generated content. Pushing the boundaries of the graphic novel genre, THE MANY WORLDS OF JONAS MOORE also engages fans by inviting them to become part of the journey by downloading the JONAS MOORE digital elements and animating their own stories or creating comic book adventures for JONAS MOORE. A special extended preview of THE MANY WORLDS OF JONAS MOORE is posted at Factory magazine online (www.factory-publishing.com). The full online digital graphic novel series for THE MANY WORLDS OF JONAS MOORE is scheduled for a late 2008 release, with the creative assets for fans to exploit and mash-up.
