Wossy gets Tinseltown comic deal
JONATHAN Ross has landed a movie deal to turn his graphic novel Turf into a Hollywood blockbuster.
The chat show host, 51, left the BBC after he controversially mocked Fawlty Towers star Andrew Sachs – whose granddaughter had slept with comic Russell Brand.
But he used the time off to fulfil his ambition of writing a comic and it’s paid off in spades after he sold an option on the book about gangsters and vampires in 1920s New York to a Tinseltown production company.
Film expert Terence Doyle said: “If the movie gets made he’ll be in for a payday in the high six figures or more.”
It is a dream come true for film fan Ross, who’s rumoured to own the largest private collection of comic books in the UK.
Ross could turn to wife Jane Goldman, who has written comic book-inspired movies including Kick Ass and X-men: First Class.
Doyle added: “It could be the perfect opportunity for some collaboration.”
