Last Call for Universal

The Oni press comic book Last Call has been picked up by Universal for development to the big screen. As reported by Variety, the film will follow the plot of the book; written and illustrated by Vasilis Lolos, the film follows the grand tradition of Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey...

"While out on a midnight drive, two friends, Alec and Sam, are hit by the "Ghost Train," an inter-dimensional soul carrier. They wake up to discover themselves stuck on the train with no way out and no ticket, which is a problem when the conductor comes around. As they desperately search for an escape, the boys uncover clues that lead them deeper into the train’s musty cabins and into the path of a killer!"

ok, so its really only got elements of bill and ted. Sounds pretty sweet actually. Although I don't have time at the moment, you can also check out a whopping 38 page preview from the first volume of the book, online at the Oni Press page. I look forward to more on this one...
