Headshot

thumb_headshot.jpgWell, it now looks official.

This morning Variety announced that Warner Bros has acquired the screen rights to Du Plomb Dans La Tete (aka Headshot in English), the three book BD series I produced with Matz for Casterman (France).

Variety reports that the film will be produced by Alexandra Milchan and 'Smallville' creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. Alessandro Camon ('The Messenger') is set to write the screenplay.

This is great news, especially as this is the third series written by Matz to be optioned by Hollywood within the last twelve months.

Outstanding!

Great news.

Has there been an English translation of this? If not will this mean one will be produced?
