David Lowery To Adapt Brian Michael Bendis And Marc Andreyko's TORSO
David Lowery has signed up to write and direct the big screen adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Marc Andreyko's (Captain America and Bucky) Torso. Read on for details on the project.
Despite spending a decade in development hell, a big screen adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Marc Andreyko's Torso is finally moving ahead according to The Hollywood Reporter. David Lowery, who recently received a great deal of critical film for Sundance film Ain't Them Bodies Saints, will write and direct the graphic novel which was released in the late 90s. According to the site, it tells: "The true story of Elliot Ness' time after his Al Capone days, when he moved to Cleveland and got embroiled in the hunt of serial killer who was leaving torsos in the river and taunting notes to police." David Fincher was at one point attached to direct, but his desire to shoot the movie in black and white and the high budget meant that Paramount scrapped the film and the rights eventually ended up reverting to Bendis and Andreyko. It will now instead be a lower budget indie movie that, "will aim to be a high-minded, period serial killer movie."
