Getting graphic

Private assassins ahoy in a new comic book adaptation…

The producers who brought A History Of Violence to the screen have tracked down another blood-filled graphic novel to film.

Created by John Wagner and Arthur Ransom, Button Man: The Killing Game follows a group of bored millionaires who spend their time developing personal assassins to pit against one another in a deadly, hidden game.

Josh Braun and Roger Kass – who shepherded Violence – will executive produce for DreamWorks, which grabbed the idea when Steven Spielberg loved the idea. Anyone now terrified that he’ll be pitching a death squad against fellow millionaire directors?
