WHAT WE KNOW:[]

In 1984, Ron Harris created Crash Ryan, a 4-issue comic book mini-series that was published by Marvel Comics' Epic Comics imprint. Today, Variety has learned that Crash Ryan is being developed into a movie by producer Ryan Heppe.

The story takes place in an alternate 1935 in a world of super airplanes and giant flying airports. Crash Ryan is a pilot caught up in the battle between the heroic United Airmen and the forces of evil, led by a masked world conqueror who calls himself “the Doom.”

The script is being written by Heppe and Road Dawgs co-writer David Cowper. Heppe and comic creator Ron Harris have already put together a 50-page outline. They view the film as mashup of Indiana Jones and Star Wars - feel of the old time serials with a mix of sci-fi flash.

“It’s an incredible canvas, but what attracted me was the redemption story: a man who can’t save himself being tasked with saving the world,” Heppe said.
