This week's REMAKE challenge from Warren Ellis.
Here's the brief:
"So we here at Whitechapel were going to be involved in a multiple-website remake/remodel-Project-Rooftop type thing for Aquaman. For some reason, this didn't pan out the way it was supposed to. Possibly I lost track of things, I don't know.
But the idea still amuses me. However, I think it needs that extra little twist.
So your INSTRUCTIONS are:
Design a publicity poster for an adaptation of the DC Comics property AQUAMAN -- for HBO. HBO is the home of DEADWOOD, THE WIRE, THE SOPRANOS, ROME, BOARDWALK EMPIRE, you know the score... and therefore you know their stable of showrunners, people like David Simon and David Milch... and the sort of material they do.
The HBO version of AQUAMAN.
That's it. You have one week. Begin."
I may have gone to "pretty boy" for HBO; this may be a better pitch for Showtime or Cinemax.
