When it comes to adaptations of popular comic book properties, things can go awry in a hurry. Hell, even small things can end up causing a ruckus because purists (many of whom are still furious over the fact the Constantine doesn’t smoke a lot in the upcoming TV show) do not like their heroes screwed with!
Earlier today the news broke that The Soska Sisters, the twin horror movie directors behind cult slasher American Mary and the upcoming See No Evil 2, have signed on to helm the adaptation of Painkiller Jane, a comic created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada.
Don’t worry, kids. These ladies love this stuff as much as you do and even went on record with a comment about their upcoming adaptation. They couldn’t say much, but what they did say was loud and clear!
“We promise that this is what’s going to be the adaptation of Painkiller Jane that people have been waiting to see. Fans of the comics are going to be really happy.”
The story centers on the titular heroine, a cop, who, along with with her best friend and partner, goes undercover into an interconnected drug ring. When her identity is exposed, Jane is tortured, which leaves her with preternatural regenerating abilities and a high tolerance for pain.
More on this one as it comes.
