Per Variety, Paul Pope’s Battling Boy graphic novel for First Second has been optioned by Paramount. Brad Pitt’s Plan B will produce the adaptation.
Here’s the description of the book that Variety provides:
Gritty tale centers on the son of a god or superhero who comes down from the top of a mountain at his father’s behest in order to rid a giant city of monsters.
I guess they’re kind of unsure about the plot. They also report that the graphic novel will finally be published … in 2010. Which is just way too far away.
