Platinum wrangles Top Cow

Timed to the start of Comic-Con, the comic book convention that opens today in San Diego, Platinum Studios has signed an exclusive deal to acquire and develop properties from leading indie comics publisher Top Cow Prods. for film and television. The agreement gives Platinum, headed by chairman Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, the largest independently controlled catalog of characters, puts it in a position to challenge market leaders Marvel Comics and DC Comics, and gives it development deals with every major Hollywood studio. Top Cow projects already in development include "Wanted" at Universal Pictures, "Inferno" at Warner Bros. Pictures, "Rising Stars" at MGM and "Fathom" at 20th Century Fox. Platinum is not becoming formally involved in those projects, but since Top Cow is dissolving its TV and film division, Platinum expects to take a role behind the scenes on the projects.
