Deadline reports that David S. Goyer will write and produce and adaptation of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s comic book series 100 Bullets for Showtime.
Goyer is no stranger to comics and adaptations, co-writing JSA for DC Comics and penning the screenplays to the Blade trilogy, co-writing the Christopher Nolan Batman films and he most recently wrote Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel.
100 Bullets tells the story about the attempt by one man, the mysterious Agent Graves, to destroy a secret group of families that control most of the world’s wealth and power, and it also poses a classic moral question, “If you could get away with murdering the person who ruined your life, would you do it?” The book’s starting-off point is Graves giving ordinary people who have been wronged a pistol and a briefcase with 100 untracable bullets, offering them to exact justice for themselves with no danger of being caught. The self-contained storylines eventually blend into a sprawling crime saga where everything — and everyone — is connected as Graves takes on a multinational clandestine organization named The Trust.
