Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have announced their next comic book movie adaptation, Grimjack.
The Russos are set to produce a Grimjack project with the possibility of directing it, depending on how their schedule shakes out in the near future. There is a little discrepancy as to whether this Grimjack adaptation will be a feature film or a TV series. Collider is reporting that it will be a movie, while Deadline claims it is a series at Amazon.
Created by John Ostrander and Tim Truman, Grimjack was one of the most prominent independent comics of the ’80s. The comic’s titular hero was John Gaunt, a cynical mercenary and assassin who operated out of Cynosure, a city where several dimensions converge.
Here’s the synopsis for the new project, per Collider:
“Grimjack is the story of mercenary and his crew who are forced to dig into their own pasts when Grimjack’s estranged teenage daughter comes to him looking for help. This will take them through the insane streets of Cynosure, a mysterious city where all parallel universes intersect. There, this unlikely team fights to save not just themselves, but all the planes of existence as we know it.”
While the Russos haven’t announced who might direct Grimjack, the Russos also revealed that they were developing a film based on Battle of the Planets that they might direct.
A potential release date for Grimjack has not been revealed.
