When last we checked, word was Universal had scooped up Rick Remender’s “Fear Agent” for a potential motion picture. However, the media onslaught of Comic-Con merited updates on the properties making the rounds in Hollywood — and this gritty space drama was certainly no exception.

“Well [‘Fear Agent’] still moving forward,” Remender told MTV News, “The press release that went out was a leak, it wasn’t official and it was missing a lot of details obviously.”

“I met with a couple of the guys involved in San Diego this past weekend and had a really good chat about it,” he expalined. “It looks like the home is going to be Universal. I don’t want to say anything definitive about any of the details yet, but it sounded like ‘Fear Agent’ might be a giant, $100 million movie.”

Remender’s optimism doesn’t seem to be solely the product of a proud creator either, as the current “Punisher” writer pointed to the current comic book-friendly climate in Hollywood and an audience appreciation for science fiction.

“It’s hard to believe, but I think that the status of the comic book industry has definitely helped.
