Guy Ritchie set for comic-book adaptation

But it ain't Batman...

Guy Ritchie is to adapt a comic-book series he helped create, entitled The Gamekeeper. The comic tells the tale of a Scottish gamekeeper turned superhero, who seeks revenge for the murder of his son, using skills he developed catching poachers and foxes (probably).

Yes, we know it sounds like we're making it up - but we promise you we're not. We haven't actually read The Gamekeeper, which is published by Virgin Comics, so for all we know the story of a bloke protecting posh people's land is equally as good as Spider-Man.

If you want to make up your own mind about the comic, you can see a sample here. The Gamekeeper film currently doesn't have a release date, Ritchie's got to clear RocknRolla from his shooting slate first.
