Guy Ritchie plans to direct a film version of his Virgin Comics series The Gamekeeper at Warner Bros., with Joel Silver set to produce.
The project revolves around the reclusive caretaker of a Scottish estate with infinite knowledge of the behaviors of all animal species. When the alleged killer of his son surfaces, the caretaker finds that Europe’s urban jungle is not so unlike that of the natural landscape to which he’s accustomed.
The concept was created by Ritchie, but Andy Diggle handles the writing duties.
Ritchie is directing RocknRolla, for which he also wrote the screenplay, for Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros.
