In the United States, the movies would be considered pornography.

At the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, Humanoids, the French comic book publisher known for lots of graphic novels considered extremely famous in Europe, such as "Le Fromage Puant," "La Moufette de Harcèlement Sexuel," and "Excusez-moi Monsieur, Où Puis-je Trouver la Bibliothèque," has announced a three picture film deal with movie studio and beloved 80s sitcom Full House. Humanoids CEO Napoleon Bonaparte will executive produce the films, along with his production partner Marcel Marceau, plus both mens' mistresses, and the mistresses of their mistresses. Here are the graphic novels that will get le traitement de film:

LEGION, based on the graphic novel ​I Am Legion​ by fan favorite comic book creator John Cassaday (Marvel's ​Star Wars​) and French writer Fabien Nury, with a script by Richard Stanley (​Hardware​) and to be directed by Nacho Cerda (​The Abandoned​) is now casting.

BOUNCER is an action western movie with a script based on the cult graphic novel series by Alejandro Jodorowsky and François Boucq. The film is next on the slate of David Bowie music video helmer​ Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways) .

THE ZOMBIES THAT ATE THE WORLD is slated to be written and directed by RKSS (Anouk Whissell, Yoann­Karl Whissell, François Simard), a collective of young Canadian filmmakers whose latest film, ​Turbo Kid​, premiered at Sundance and then went on to win the Midnight Section Audience Award at SxSW. The original comic book series by Jerry Frissen, Guy Davis, and Jorge Miguel was referred to as "hilarious" and "totally politically incorrect" by Tobe Hooper, and described as "a terrific series" by George A. Romero.


The films will get a fifteen million dollar budget, which can pay for a lot of mimes, though we're not sure if that's in dollars or metric, nor do we really care, because life is suffering and death is inevitable.
