In a weird turn of events, Sony has partnered with Wizard World for an intellectual property deal "to find the next generation of movies as well as to engage in a number of strategic initiatives." With this deal, both companies will develop original IP from the writers, artists, and creators who attend Wizard World's various conventions.

"We are always looking for new ways to find that next generation of great IP," said Jonathan Kadin, Sony Pictures' Executive Vice President of Production for Sony Pictures. "This deal gives us unique access to the incredible talent that Wizard World can bring to the table, putting us in a prime position to find the stories that break through the clutter."

Wizard World is known for attracting the best talent in the industry so only great things can come from this partnership. Hopefully Sony will be able to make sense of all that "clutter" that is comics.
