Duncan Rouleau’s 2009 Image Comics miniseries, The Great Unknown, is headed to the screen, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. New Line is developing the property with newcomer Michael Starrbury writing and MacGruber director Jorma Taccone directing. Both written and illustrated by Rouleau, The Great Unknown is officially described as follows:
A mind-throbbing whodunnit! Everything Zach Feld imagines – impossibly – shows up somewhere else. It’s as if someone is reading his mind and selling his incredible thoughts to the highest bidder. His friends and family think Zach is a freeloader with delusions of grandeur – making up one weird paranoiac story after another to defend his directionless life. They might be right. But when Zach begins to dig deeper into the mystery, he discovers that they might be very, very wrong. Has someone been sneaking around inside Zach’s mind? Visionary storyteller Rouleau (“Metal Men”, “The Nightmarist”, “X-Factor”) creates this five-issue series about one man’s quest to find the people responsible for raiding his thoughts and relegating him to a life of being the great unknown.
Mark Gordon and Jennifer Todd are attached to produce with Drew Simon overseeing.
