Hey this film is still not made, they have been talking about making this since 2000. With all the crapy comic book to film adaptions, a studio could throw 40 mil to a director, they would make that money back in DVD and BR sales alone.
Do it as an HBO series like True Blood. It could be done right, I read the comic all the time it's one of my favorite series of all time. Whenever I read it I always think it would make a great film or TV series if done right. I mean look at watchmen that was a faithful adaption of the book. So it is possible. One more thing about the so called offensive nature of the book. Not doing a peice of art or a story solely for the reason that it may offend is not a good excuse for why it shouldn't be made. I mean look at Dogma, that film was panned by the religious right (before they even saw it I might add) at the same time as Stigmata came out. Dogma had a positive message in it about religion, Stigmata pritty much said the church is a lie. Did Stigmata get any negative press...No it didn`t. So I don`t really care about what the religious right would think of this film; it would be for the people who want to see it. Bottom line I respect your views but to not do something because someone might get upset then not even two days latter move on to something else is just a chicken shit move. I mean the bibble thumpers think Harry Potter is evil...
One more thing not all comic book adaptions are crap when they actually follow the property and a story arc in the comics properly. Examples of this are Watchman, V for Vendetta, Dark Knight, Iron Man. So it is possible but with everyone of those movies theirs a couple Spider-Man 3`s.
