A Torso Drawn and Quartered for AdaptationAnother graphic novel is ready to get a big screen adaptation. This time Hollyweird has its sights set on Brian Michael Bendis and Marc Andreyko’s illustrated property Torso. Read on for the initial details.

According to THR, David Lowery, the filmmaker who drew much praise for his Sundance film Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, has come aboard to write and direct the thriller, which will be produced by Circle of Confusion, the shingle behind AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Bendis and Andreyko are also producing as are David and Toby Halbrooks of Sailor Bear, Lowery’s production banner.

Hollywood has tried for more than a decade to get its hooks into Torso, which was written by Bendis and Andreyko and drawn by Bendis in the late 1990s.

Torso tells the true story of Elliot Ness’ time after his Al Capone days, when he moved to Cleveland and got embroiled in the hunt of serial killer who was leaving torsos in the river and sending taunting notes to police. More on this one as it comes.
