Eliza Dushku To Star In Torchwood Spinoff

Remember how Jane Espenson teased us a couple of weeks ago with some cryptic tweets hinting that Eliza Dushku might star in a Torchwood spinoff ? Well, the mystery has become a reality. Espenson had tweeted (among other things) that she had "faith in Torchwood: Web of Lies ," which we all hoped would mean what we all thought it meant—that Dushku, the actress who'd brought the character of Faith to life on Buffy the Vamppre Slayer, would be starring in a new Torchwood series.

Animation. Lauren Montgomery and Sam Liu are directing the movie, the 12th entry in the successful series of DC universe animated originals. Tab Murphy wrote the script. The feature adapts the landmark four-issue story written by Miller and drawn by David Mazzucchelli that first appeared in 1987 on the heels of Miller's seminal work, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Those tomes, along with The Watchmen, helped elevate the comics medium, changing the public's perception of the art form and influencing Hollywood writers and artists to this day.

She added, “But I would be excited to do it!
