Todd Lincoln to direct comicbook adaptation
Daniel Alter, who most recently oversaw “Hitman” at Fox, will produce the project. The two have been building a rep setting up comicbook or vidgame-based projects at several studios, including “Lost Squad,” also at Rogue; “Kane and Lynch” at Lionsgate; and “Spy Hunter” at Universal. They also have “Jonny Quest” at WB, based on the TV toon. Meanwhile, Marks is on a roll, landing high-profile comicbook, videogame and toy-based adaptations. He is scripting “Voltron: Defender of the Universe” for New Regency and Fox; “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” for Joel Silver and toymaker Mattel at Warner Bros.; and the Green Arrow actioner “Supermax,” also at WB. He also penned “Street Fighter” for Hyde Park and Fox.
