Filmmakers planning Comic-Con documentary
By Borys Kit
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, TV producer Joss Whedon, Ain't It Cool News founder Harry Knowles, and Stan Lee are teaming up to make a feature documentary about Comic-Con.
"Comic-Con Episode Four: A Fan's Hope" will, in the worlds of the film's makers, "follow seven different people from across America, and around the world, as they descend upon the veritable Mecca of fandom and experience the rapture that is Comic-Con."
Spurlock, who was nominated for an Oscar for his "Super Size Me" documentary, is directing. Shooting begins in June, tracking its subjects to this year's Comic-Con, which runs July 21-25 in San Diego.
Said Knowles: "I've been going to Comic-Con since 1974 and have been amazed that nobody has mounted a serious attempt at documenting what it is that happens there."
Knowles, Whedon and Lee are on board in undetermined consulting roles.
