In 2002, Image Comics released the prestige one-shot “The Pro” by writer Garth Ennis and artists Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, a hilarious book about a prostitute who gets superpowers. Although the creators had been trying to get an animated series based on the character off the ground, the book’s inker Jimmy Palmiotti now mentions on his Blogspot blog that those plans have stalled, but that they’re now looking into doing a live action version of the character.
Palmiotti’s first choice to play the lead role is comedienne Sarah Silverman, and he’s posted a couple hot pics of Silverman in various poses and states of undress on the blog as proof that he thinks she has what it takes physically, as well as the undeniably sassy sense of humor her fans love, to pull off such a role.
This is the first word of such a project being in development and though one presumes they creators will still need to pitch the idea to a studio or production company and there’s a long process involved with getting a movie like that off the ground, getting Sarah Silverman attached sounds like a good way to get a project like this moving forward.
If you’ve read the original comic book and are a fan, let us know what you think of the idea of them making a movie based on it starring Silverman.
