In 2009 Ethan Nicolle and his five year old brother Malachi created a web-comic called Axe Cop. The web-comic has become such a success on the internet that it lead to a print comic being published by Dark Horse, an animated TV series is in the works, and an Axe Cop version of the Munchkin card game has been published. Now the Nicolles are involved in making a documentary about the creation and rise of Axe Cop.
Axe Cop Doc: The Official Documentary of Axe Cop is being planed for a July 2013 release to coincide with premiere of the Axe Cop animated series on Fox. However, Nicolle and indie filmmaker Nancy Oey need help to get this movie made. They have set-up a Kickstarter campaign to fund editing the doc, adding animation sequences, and paying for original music.

By The Power Of Hollywood!
Traveling to the past to find ideas continues to be a development plan as Hollywood continues reinventing the 80s. According to Deadline, Jon M. Chu is in talks to direct a live-action Masters Of The Universemovie, based on the Mattel toy line, for Sony Pictures and Escape Artists. Chu has gained some experience with making movies from 80s toy lines. He is currently in the middle of a doing a 3D conversion, and shooting some new scenes on G.I. Joe: Retaliationfor a March 29, 2013 release by Paramount.
Launched in 1981, Mastersof the Universe follows Prince Adam, who has the ability to magically transform into the warrior He-Man. Along with his comrades, The Masters, He-Man fights to protect the fantasy world of Eternia from the sinister Skeletor and his horde. The Masters franchise is commonly called He-Man after the main character, and the incredibly popular toy line gave birth to multiple anaimated TV series, and a flop of a live-action movie in 1987.
Escape Artists has a script by the writing team of Alex Litvak (The Three Musketeers and Five Against A Bullet) and Mike Finch (Exclusively Yours). Escape Artists’ partners Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing.
Its amazing to see this cast voice these characters, and how they can be multiple characters. I can’t believe that Tara Strong is the voice of Timmy Turner. It almost seems unreal to see his voice coming from her.
Oh, and this isn’t entirely safe for work, or the ears of little children.
