Spy Vs. Spy: The Movie

June 24th, 2011 | Posted in MAD Magazine

Many sources are reporting that director Ron Howard (Splash!, Apollo 13, The Da Vinci Code, etc.) has been signed to direct a live action film based on the long-running MAD Magazine feature Spy Vs. Spy. “Live action” of course means with actors and not using animation. An interesting approach. How much of Spy vs. Spy’s appeal is because of the art style and character design of the late Antonio Prohias? I guess we’ll be finding out.

    I always liked checking out Spy vs. Spy because I liked the look of it and the characters. I haven’t looked at it as much lately. Maybe its because I always read it in black & white, but i’m not really liking the color version, it just doesn’t appeal too me as much.
