XIII Graphic Novels Coming to Television

XIII, based on the graphic novels by Jean Van Hamme, will be brought to television as a joint Canadian/French production starring actor Stuart Townsend (the remake of The Night Stalker, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). Described as a conspiracy/spy thriller, the graphic novels have been around for 25 years.

Offers The Hollywood Reporter, "Townsend will play 'XIII, a former secret agent who cannot remember his past and thus sets out to uncover his true identity. Hunted by an anti-government organization, XIII quickly realizes that the closer he gets to the truth, the more deadly the mission becomes."

Thirteen episodes of the series will be produced. It will air on France's Canal Plus and Canada's Showcase. While XIII hasn't been picked up in the U.S. yet, one would imagine it will only be a matter of time.
