Justin Marks has been hired to adapt Hack/Slash, Rogue Pictures’ adaptation of the Devil’s Due Publishing comic book Todd Lincoln will direct, says Variety.
The comic, created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, revolves around Cassie Hack, a young woman who travels the country and takes on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way.
The trade says the action film will be heavy on comedy and horror.
Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter, who most recently oversaw Hitman at Fox, will produce the project. They have previously setup Lost Squad at Rogue, Kane and Lynch at Lionsgate, Spy Hunter at Universal and Jonny Quest at Warner Bros.
Marks is also scripting Voltron: Defender of the Universe for New Regency and Fox; He-Man and the Masters of the Universe for Joel Silver and Mattel at Warner Bros.; and the Green Arrow actioner Supermax, also at Warner Bros. He previously penned Street Fighter for Hyde Park and Fox.
