Universal Bringing Psycho to the Big Screen

Variety reports that Universal Pictures has bought screen rights to the DC graphic novel The Psycho, and the studio has set Jeffrey Nachmanoff (“The Day After Tomorrow”) to draft the film.

The Psycho is an action-thriller about a government agent who uncovers a technology being used to genetically turn people into super-humans. The three-issue series was published in 1991 and created by James Hudnall and Dan Brereton.

Of the f/x-heavy “Psycho,” Nachmanhoff said, “It is a contemporary but altered reality like ‘The Matrix,’ but what I most liked is the moral quandary of the protagonist, who ends up having to become what he despises when he takes this drug.”
