One of the interesting side effects of superheroes dominating the box office is the number of smaller, indie comic books being targeted for adaptation. The results have been varied: 'A History of Violence,' 'Red,' 'Road to Perdition' and 'Whiteout' were all comics before they were movies (although most of the paying public wouldn't know it). The next comic to join this line-up is the 2001 miniseries 'Area 52.'

It felt like the story of Willie - the safecracking mall Santa in 2003's 'Bad Santa' - was perfect as is, but star Billy Bob Thornton has recently been mentioning that he wants to do a sequel. That may come to pass as it looks like Steve Pink has been hired to rewrite and direct the film.
