Amazon's Free Graphic Novel Could Become A Movie?

destinyland (578448) writes "Amazon's just announced that they're giving away a free graphic novel — a supernatural "horror" comic set during the Civil War — that you can read online or with a Kindle app (or the Kindle Fire tablet). But it looks like Amazon's ultimate plan is to film it as their own movie. “If we made this comic into a full-budget feature film, would you go see it?” Amazon asks on the first page of the graphic novel. In the last two years, "Amazon Studios" pored through more than 10,000 possible movie screenplays, and ultimately settled on just 17 finalists (along with nine possible TV series), saying crowdsourcing convinced them to test this idea "for viability as a major motion picture.”"
