Todd Lincoln to direct comicbook adaptation

Scribe Justin Marks has been tapped to tackle “Hack/Slash,” Rogue Pictures’ adaptation of the Devil’s Due Publishing comicbook Todd Lincoln will helm.

Comicbook, created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, revolves around Cassie Hack, a young woman who travels the country and takes on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way.

The actioner will be heavy on comedy and horror.

Adrian Askarieh and 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.
