Blip Takes “Great S. Cape” from ‘Dark Knight’ Producer Michael Uslan

Michael Uslan, an executive producer on all three of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, as well as a bunch of other Batman-related projects (seriously, the guy loves Batman), is partnering with Blip to produce a new superhero web series in the style of — you guessed it — the Caped Crusader.

As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Uslan’s live-action web series, “The Great S. Cape,” will follow Stephen Cape, a magician/illusionist who decides his unique set of skills can be better employed to solve crimes, including “the most insidious murder plot in Hollywood.” Cape, who will be played by South African actor Ian Duncan, shares some similarities with Mr. Bruce Wayne, most notably that both men refuse to use guns.

The show, which will go for a “film noir adventure” vibe, will consist of 12 episodes. Duncan is the only known cast member at the moment, though THR notes that future announcements will be made shortly. Uslan is writing the series as well as executive producing it through his company, Branded Entertainment, in association with Rockstream Studios. Other producers include Michael Goldfine and Gil Kruger.

Uslan’s involvement with Nolan’s seminal Dark Knight trilogy will get most of the attention — as it should. It’s definitely a good “get” for Blip. Though give the digital media company credit for collaborating on a superhero web series with a man who has a lot of experience in that field.

“The Great S. Cape” will go into production at the end of April, with a premiere scheduled for later this year. Blip will offer a glimpse during its Newfront presentation on May 1.

VideoInk has reached out to Blip for additional comments, and will update when they come in.
