The Batman and Robin writer said that the Vertigo comic's high levels of violence have caused problems in the development of the film, despite him having produced a toned-down version of the story for the screenplay.
"Relativity Pictures keeps saying they're doing it, and they still haven't done it," he told MTV News. "That's where we stand right now. There's some news coming that I can't say anything about that might be good for We3, but so far that's where we stand."
Illustrated by Frank Quitely, We3 follows the adventures of three pets-turned-cyborg-weapons that escape from the facility where they were created.
