'Witchblade' film in the works

Another comic book to film adaptation is in the works. This comes courtesy of Variety,

Platinum Studios, Top Cow Prods. and Arclight Films will team on a live-action feature adaptation of "Witchblade," based on the Top Cow comicbook franchise.

The comicbook introduced the Witchblade mythology, which centers on an ornate jewel-encrusted gauntlet that gives extraordinary powers to the wearer, a specially chosen female from each generation.

Once again, I'm not fully familiar with this comic. I remember seeing it advertised in some videogame magazines back in the day. It features a pretty much nude chick who fights stuff...that's about all I know. Kinda looks like a slightly pornographic comic to me and I don't think I'll ever read it. I'm not super interested in the film because of this, but maybe you are? Let us know if you are a fan and think this adaptation will be good.

[EDIT] Apparently Witchblade was already a television series at one point in time in early 2000.
