Lesser known comic book company Castle Rock Entertainment has just announced that they too will be getting in on the current comic book-to-movie craze, as their popular (as far as these things go) title Jack the Lantern looks to join the ranks of the silver screen super humans.  Aparently, the story of Jack the Lantern is a wild tale of redemption-seeking on the part of the title character. The film will be handled by producer Joe Aresco and screenwriter Larry Koch.  Beyond that, details are currently scant. We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

I know next to nothing about this title, except that I've seen it around here and there. The cover art looks typical of the horror/fantasy genre, but as they say - you can't judge a book by its cover. Are there any serious Jack fans out there who can tell me if this title is worth looking into? Or even someone who has read a few of the books and can give us an idea what to expect from the story?
