Universal Pictures to Distribute Bendis’ Jinx

Variety reports that Universal Pictures has made a deal to turn the graphic novel Jinx into a feature film, with Charlize Theron attached to topline and produce under her D and D banner.

Brian Michael Bendis, who created the graphic novel, will adapt his crime noir creation for the screen. Theron will play a bounty hunter who must trust a man framed for murder so they can recover millions in abandoned mobster money and start a new life together.

Several of Bendis’ creations are already set up as movies, including Powers at Sony and Torso with Todd McFarlane Productions. He was also co-exec producer and wrote the pilot for MTV’s CGI Spider-Man series.
