Incredibly excited to confirm I’m working on an adaption of Gerry Finley-Day & Dave Gibbons’ 2000AD comic ROGUE TROOPER!
Lot of work ahead though, so we will NOT be at SDCC.

And, an interesting sidenote from former “2000AD” writer Neil Gaiman…
Finally! That’s great news. Rogue Trooper was @ManMadeMoon‘s dream film the first time I met him, over 15 years ago…

Rogue is a blue-skinned, genetically engineered elite soldier who searches for the Traitor General with his three comrades. His comrades are in the form of biochips on his rifle, backpack and helmet.
Back in 2011, acclaimed comics writer Grant Morrison revealed his own plans to adapt Rogue Trooper for Sam Worthington’s company, Full Clip Productions.
