Warner aims for ‘Headshot’

Studio acquires rights to Alexis Nolent series

Warner Bros. has acquired screen rights to “Headshot,” a three-book graphic novel series by Alexis Nolent that was published in France by Casterman. Alessandro Camon has been set to write the script.

The film will be produced by Alexandra Milchan and “Smallville” creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.

In “Headshot,” an unlikely alliance between a cop and a hitman takes place after each watches his partner die. The new partners seek revenge and discover they have a shared enemy and much in common despite being on opposite sides of the law.

Deal marks the second Nolent title for WB and Milchan. The studio is developing “Cyclops” as a directing vehicle for James Mangold, with Cathy Konrad producing with Milchan. Milchan also is producing an adaptation of Nolent’s “The Killer” at Paramount for David Fincher to direct.

Camon adapted the Oren Moverman-directed drama “The Messenger” and scripted an adaptation of Robert Ludlum novel “The Chancellor Manuscript” for Leonardo DiCaprio at Paramount.
