Intrepid adapting ‘Couriers’

Film will be produced by Evans, Macy

Intrepid Pictures is developing an adaptation of the “Couriers” series of graphic novels and tapped Javier Grillo-Marxuach, an Emmy winner for “Lost,” to pen the screenplay.

“Couriers” will be produced by Intrepid’s Marc Evans and Trevor Macy. Jason Netter of Kickstart Comic Art Studios is also producing and Ken Levin is the executive producer.

The series, created by Brian Wood and Rob G and published by AiT/Planet Lar, follows two mercenary couriers working in New York City who handle such tasks as large cash transfers, protection, assassinations and blockade running, in exchange for money from an unidentified contractor. Story centers on a ruthless Chinese general intent on silencing a little girl who holds the key to a worldwide criminal conspiracy.

Macy and Evans founded Intrepid in 2005 as a feature production and co-financing company with a first-look deal with Universal and Rogue Pictures with three to five pictures per year in teen comedy, horror, thriller and action genres. Its slate includes the remake of “The Hitcher,” “Balls of Fury,” “Strangers” and “Doomsday.”
