‘Spider-Man' Creator Stan Lee to Turn Stars Into Superheroes20 Dec, 2004 By: Brendan Howard
Celebrities that seem like they're from another world will be animated and actually fight characters from other worlds, if POW! Entertainment and Celebrities in Action have their way.
The two companies — POW! Entertainment, which was founded by legendary writer Stan Lee of Marvel Comics fame, and the entertainment company Celebrities in Action — will work together to develop feature films, direct-to-DVD titles, consumer products, books, clothes and video games involving “about 25 characters,” according to Celebrities in Action consultant Chris Nassif.
Exactly which celebrities will participate is still up in the air.
“What a kick it is to be tackling a project as original and unique as creating new personas and storylines for actual, world-famous celebrities,” Lee said. “And what a challenge! Imagine making superheroes of people who are already superheroes.”
