Variety reports that Hanna screenwriter Seth Lochhead has been hired to write the script for the feature adaptation of the Image comic series Who Is Jake Ellis? for Twentieth Century Fox. "Harry Potter" director David Yates will helm the feature, which is being produced by Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping.

Written by Nathan Edmonson and illustrated by Tonci Zonjic, the book is officially described as follows:

"Jon Moore is the most sought after spy-for-hire in Europe’s criminal world. This is because of Jake Ellis, a psychic man who is invisible to everyone except Moore. When a deal goes bad, the only one who can protect Moore from Europe’s most dangerous criminals is Jake Ellis. No one but Moore can see Jake Ellis. But Jake Ellis can see everything."

The Eisner-nominated miniseries ran for five issues in 2011 and was followed by a sequel series, Where Is Jake Ellis?, in 2012.
