Tim Miller to Direct Comic Book Adaptation Gravel

Blur Studios’ Tim Miller, who directed the opening credits for David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, has been set by Legendary Pictures to direct Gravel, says Deadline.

Gravel is a comic book series created by Warren Ellis. The project revolves around the character William Gravel, a soldier in the British S.A.S. who uses his skills in dark magic to moonlight and battle supernatural beings for clients in order to make some extra cash.

Ellis introduced the character in a 1999 limited series of graphic novels published under the title “Strange Kiss.”

Legendary will produce the project with Rick Alexander, with Ellis as executive producer and Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell are writing the script. Warner Bros. will distribute the film.

Miller is also attached to direct Deadpool at Twentieth Century Fox.
