News on Liquid flows

The Hollywood Reporter has more on the launch of Liquid Comics, formed when Virgin Comics’ Gotham Chopra, Sharad Devarajan and Suresh Seetharaman bought out the assets of the company. As previously expected, Liquid will continue to develop digital content, films, animation and gaming projects based on its original characters and stories. Director Shekhar Kapur will have a changed role, however.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kapur said he will no longer be associated with the company, except as a minority shareholder. “The company is in the process of being restructured, and I continue as a founder-shareholder,” he said.

Liquid’s management plans to proceed with a number of projects previously announced by Virgin and said it soon would announce project launch dates.

But it was not clear whether Virgin-associated talent such as actor Nicolas Cage, porn actress and entrepreneur Jenna Jameson and U.K. musician Dave Stewart would work with Liquid.

Ongoing projects include “Virulents,” a feature based on a Virgin graphic novel to be directed by John Moore (“Behind Enemy Lines”).

Liquid was announced in Sept. 2008 and since then news about the company seems to have evaporated…but they are still around and now announcing some projects. [...]
