It doesn't say he will star in it. He is producing it.
The Boston Herald ran a piece that said Mark Wahlberg will "star" in "The Armory Wars." Clearly misinformed on multiple levels. Here's hoping he only produces, and doesn't actually act in it, becasue, dear lord, he is awful.
I could never imagine this would have been a thing in 2003 in High School when Coheed was one of the only bands I could listen to. Never would have guessed they'd make a full feature film from the story. So so cool.
Woo! I'd say it's definitely about time. This is definitely a pretty big gamble. With any movies based on a previously-existing story, like a graphic novel, I almost always seem to hear that the books were better. However, the story is so huge and fantastic, I think whether it lives up to the albums and comics or not, it's most likely going to be better than 99% of what's coming out of Hollywood right now.
