Corto Maltese film?
« on: April 17, 2019, 02:59:17 PM »
Apparently there is a Corto Maltese film in the works according to IMDB.  Based on Corto Maltese in Siberia with the actor who played Prince Albert in Victoria as the lead.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8694596/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1

At least they have a poster .  There was another Canadian production with Viggo Mortensen attached that never got off the ground.  wonder who they will get to play the 'Bloody Baron'?

Sounds interesting.
On You tube I watched some cartoons of his adventures.
They were still shots of color drawings with voice overs.
Also some moving parts,
over all well done.
Pretty cool.

i'm bit sceptical about a moovie...while the drawings, plates and historical/iconographical introductions of those comics were quite interesting..(really not beautiful as they seem to have been drawed by 5 year's child) at least as uniform reference in days in which we did'nt have many sources...on the other hand  the stories behind told by those comics by Mr Pratt  were the most boring, meaningless that could be find on the Italian rich comics production..too much stupid for adult readers , meaningless and complicated to  youngster readers...Dankalian, Masai or Mongols bandits talked like  unintelligible intellectuals while Colonial European officers, Zarist lords and the very  boring supposed to be Navy Officer Corto himself were all afraid to be on the scene, comb their hair with jelly   and acted and talk like 1930's west side waiters...
well i hope but did'nt espect to see a film, without drawings but with real actors  based on those same characters created by Hugo Pratt  , today in  the age of politically correct and watered down brains, to be less boring than the comics albums
