Brian Michael Bendis' 'Scarlet' Heads To Cinemax

Following the successful premiere of Robert Kirkman's Outcast, television network Cinemax has got its eyes on adapting a second mature comic-book series: Brian Michael Bendis' Scarlet. Published by Marvel's icon imprint (which allows for creator-owned stories told outside of the Marvel Universe), Scarlet has been running since 2010 and tells the story of the titular Scarlet Rue who starts a modern American revolution following the murder of her innocent boyfriend by corrupt police officers.
Bendis made the announcement that the series was headed to television at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, but stressed that at this point it is only in the earliest stages of development. The writer, who has already seen two of his comics recreated for the small screen in the form of Netflix's Jessica Jones and the PlayStation Network's Powers, claims that the team developing this latest adaptation is set to be formally announced soon.
The Scarlet comic-book series has been greeted with a generally positive reception from fans and critics alike, and is illustrated by Bendis' frequent collaborator Alex Maleev. The series has an infamously slow release schedule, with only nine issues released since it began six years ago.
