What’s the one thing that’s less Incognito than a comic about a supervillain in witness protection falling off the wagon and hitting the streets once more?
A movie about it.
Deadline has reported that Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ superhero noir book has been picked up by 20th Century Fox. Playwright Robert Schenkkan will be writing the adaptation, while Chernin Entertainment and Circle of Confusion will be teaming up for production duties.
“We’ve all seen the story of a good person who goes undercover and gets corrupted,” Bru told Deadline. “This is a bad person forced to live among regular people, and how he’s affected by that. He once ran around with a mask, but now he’s got the fake name and the fake job. My goal was to have you rooting for him as he grows a conscience.”
There’s currently no word as to when this might hit the big screen.
