‘Last Days’ A Pulp Thriller

Interview with Rick Remender on THE LAST DAYS OF AMERICAN CRIME in USAToday.com

“From cover art to opening pages, Last Days hits readers with an unflinching dose of pulp noir seediness and doesn’t let up. This dark world of criminals is one that Remender is comfortable writing about. ‘I’m drawn to that lifestyle, I suppose. I come from that background. I’ve never known any heroes, but I’ve known a lot of villains in real life. When you’re at the bottom, you don’t have a lot to lose. Writing from that perspective is more honest to me.’

If it feels like you’re watching an old-fashioned crime flick while reading the comic book, it should. The comic is actually serving as the screenplay for a movie that’s already in pre-production. Hollywood up-and-comer Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation, Avatar) will step into the role of safe-cracking sociopath Kevin Cash. He’ll also assume the role of producer, along with his producing partner Michael Schwarz and Radical’s president and publisher Barry Levine.”
