Road to Perdition Scribe to Re-Write Deathlok

The Deathlok film will get a fresh look from David Self.

David Self (Road to Perdition, Thirteen Days, The Haunting) will rewrite the big screen adaptation of Marvel Comics' Deathlok comic.

In the comics, Deathlok is the story of a deceased G.I. brought back to life and fused with bionic parts and a computer intelligence that co-inhabits his mind. Hollywood Reporter describes it as centering on "a suburban family man who becomes the test subject for a technology research lab that transforms him into a living computer." It'll be a Paramount picture.

The original script was written by Stu Zicherman and Raven Metzner. Wicker Park's Paul McGuigan may take Lee Tamahori's place as director, the trade said.
