UFO Magazine: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Platinum Studios, the comic book company that moved into film production with Men in Black and the upcoming Cowboys and Aliens, has entered into an exclusive deal with UFO Magazine to develop the publication's extensive library for feature films, video games and comic books.

The deal encompasses more than two decades' worth of content related to UFOs and unexplained phenomena. The first two projects acquired under the deal will be developed as both feature films and graphic novels.

Based on a story by Scott O. Brown, "Escape Velocity" is a present-day action-adventure in the vein of "The Fugitive" about a reporter and a pilot who steal a working alien spacecraft recovered by the Air Force. The second project, "Hive," based on a story by Andrew Foley, is a thriller in the vein of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" about a woman attempting to escape from a mysterious cult.
