Well this is interesting. Yeah, I know having a graphic novel adapted is nothing new, but Universal has found one that shows us how the other half lives.
Universal Pictures Gives Us Villains
Universal Pictures paid mid-six-figures for the screen rights to the upcoming Viper Comics graphic novel, Villains.
Bringing on scribes Brent Strickland and Matt Jennison to adapt the comic, Villains will tell a story from the perspective of two, you guessed it, villains. The title character is a young man who is failing at life and finds purpose when he meets a Svengali-style villain who takes him under his wing.
Strickland and Jennison are also in the process of writing a Wonder Woman script for Warner Bros.
The graphic novel was created by Adam Cogan and Ryan Cody.
