Here's one that slipped under the radar over the last couple of months.
Before we produced Du Plomb Dans La Tete, my favorite French scribe Matz wrote a wonderful, quirky comic series Le Tueur (Casterman). It's worth checking out purely for artist Luc Jacamon's beautiful colour work. During the last year small US comic publisher Archaia Studios Press have started publication of an English translation
, and early in November news came through that the series has now been optioned by Paramount for a major film, possibly staring Brad Pitt.
Now while Pitt wouldn't be my pick for the starring role, here's the clincher: the director is penciled in as David Fincher. Having already directed three of my all-time favorite films - Se7en, Fight Club, and this year's most underrated film, Zodiac - if Fincher actually gets to direct The Killer we are in for one very wild ride. It doesn't get much better that that!
