One of the most successful “genre” screenwriters is looking to adapt one of the most critically acclaimed series of the past decade to TV, Deadline reports.
David S. Goyer, who has credits from Dark City to Blade to The Dark Knight, is attached to write and produce a 100 Bullets series for Showtime. Goyer’s most recent TV work was ABC’s FlashForward, which ran for one season. Given the series’ status as a Vertigo/DC property, Warner Bros. TV is producing.
100 Bullets spanned 100 issues from 1999 to 2009, all by writer Brian Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso (currently working on the Flashpoint tie-in Batman: Knight of Vengeance). There have been light rumors of a 100 Bullets TV series in the past, and work had started on a video game adaptation, which has been stalled in development hell for years.
