Warren Ellis’ comic series Gravel, about a soldier in the British S.A.S. who possesses some dark magic mojo, has been picked up by Legendary Pictures for a theatrical adaptation.
Variety informs us that Ellis, who introduced the character in a 1999 limited series of graphic novels published under the title “Strange Kiss”, will pen the initial draft of the screenplay for the pic and serve as executive producer on the project.
The comics, published by Avatar Press, revolve around the character William Gravel, who uses his special skills to moonlight and battle supernatural beings for clients in order to make some extra cash.
Legendary is no stranger to the horror genre as they are currently shooting Christopher Nolan’s Inception, Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, Jimmy Hayward’s Jonah Hex, and Louis Leterrier’s remake of Clash of the Titans.
