The Hollywood Reporter reports that Brian Wood and Rob G’s Couriers graphic novels are heading to the silver screen:
Rogue Pictures and Intrepid Pictures have picked up the movie rights to “Couriers,” a series of action graphic novels, and have set writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach to adapt.
Written by Brian Wood and illustrated by Rob G, the series follows the adventures of two gun-toting mercenary couriers named Moustafa and Special who take on jobs other couriers do not, such as intelligence, large cash transfers, protection, assassinations and blockade-running.
Three graphic novels have been published so far by AiT/PlanetLar, and the series has been praised for its Hong Kong movie and Japanese animation-influenced kinetic art style and action set pieces.
Grillo-Marxuach also has written The Middleman for Viper Comics, and Super-Skrull and Annihilation for Marvel Comics.
The Couriers, released in 2002, was followed by The Couriers: Dirtbike Manifesto and The Couriers: The Ballad of Johnny Funwrecker.
