Warner Bros. to Turn Michael McMillian’s ‘Lucid’ Into Movie Franchise

By  |  1 Comment

Michael McMillian returns to True Blood this season with a pretty large feather in his cap: Warner Bros. just purchased his graphic novel series, Lucid, as a possible movie franchise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is looking at Lucid as a sort of successor to Harry Potter. The comic series is set in a parallel universe where magic is real and world leaders have secret agents working to fight off supernatural threats. The main character, Matthew Dee, is a young combat mage and undercover operative, recently appointed “Protector of the Realm,” who must use his skills to stop an occult technology dealer. In other words, Harry Potter all grown up.

We interviewed Michael at New York Comic Con when the first issue came out, and even then he had hopes that it would one day be developed into a film or TV series. Congratulations, Mike!
