Superman series co-producer Pierre Spengler is lining up a slate of new projects in anticipation of the Cannes. Screen Daily (http://www.screendaily.com/) says he's bringing two genre projects to the festival's film market.

The first being I Am Legion, a directing vehicle for Nacho Cerda (Aftermath, Abandoned) based on the comic book by Fabien Nury and John Cassaday.

French publisher Humanoids released the comic which was picked up in the U.S. by Devil's Due. The synopsis goes like this: While the outcome of the war is in doubt, the Nazis frantically search for Ana, a girl with the ability to possess other bodies.Richard Stanley is attached to write the script.

I think this has potential. I enjoyed Stanley's part of The Theater Bizarre even if it was a bit obvious and predictable (two words I never thought I'd use to describe his work) and Cerde has a lot of talent even if his output hasn't been particularly prolific. I'm not at all familiar with the comic and that plot synopsis is pretty gosh darned vague but Richard Stanley, Nazi's, Nacho Cerde and possession sounds like a potentially awesome mix.
