As of July, popular actress Rosario Dawson has been co-writing a comic book series for Image Comics entitled Occult Crimes Taskforce (O.C.T.). The lead character of said comic, a Gotham city detective who finds herself in a crazy group which uses mystical and black arts to fight off ghouls and the like, is clearly modeled after Dawson and has been intended for a movie since Dawson conceived of her.

Enter Dimension Films, who has worked successfully with Dawson in the past. Dimension has acquired movie rights to the property, and have retained Dawson's compatriots David Atchison (co-writer/co-creator) and Tony Shasteen (illustrator) to co-produce the film. It is a sweet life you're living when you can think of a character you enjoy, and then turn her into a comic book and movie property for yourself to star in. I don't generally read Image comics, and I have not encountered O.C.T. during the book's brief run, so I really have no idea what to expect on this one. If there are any fans out there, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
