Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Producing Adaption of Sleeper for Warner Bros.

Based on the series created by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, an adaptation of “Sleeper” was set up previously at WB with director Sam Raimi producing and Tom Cruise starring.

“Sleeper,” which ran from 2003-05, centers on an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass it on to others through skin contact. He is placed undercover in a villainous organization by an intelligence agency and falls for a member of the group, named Miss Misery.
