The adaptation of the Oni Press book Billy Smoke has a director, the Hollywood Reporter says.
Jeffrey Nachmanoff, who wrote and directed the Don Cheadle vehicle Traitor, has signed up to helm the film. Matthew Fox (the screamer from Lost) is set to star in the film, while Oni’s Peter Schwerin is set to executive produce.
Billy Smoke, created by B. Clay Moore and Eric Kim, is the story of a hitman who is nearly killed during a botched job. His pathway to redemption? Rid the world of all other assassins.
