Rucka's Whiteout lands a director
One of my favorite comic collections, Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber's Whiteout, about a federal marshal named Carrie Stetko on the trail of a killer in the frozen Antarctic wilderness, is heading to the big screen.
Kate Beckinsale was attached to play the lead a few weeks ago, a role that was once in the hands of Reese Witherspoon. Either one would be great as Stetko, but I was really looking forward to seeing Witherspoon in as a bad ass role.
Variety reports Dominic Sena (Kalifornia, Swordfish)will direct. That step makes the production a definite.
The movie could be pretty good, but what you really need to do is buy the Trade Paperback and its sequel Melt from Oni Press
