Kim Jee-Woon, who helmed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand has signed on to direct Coward, an adaptation of the acclaimed comic series Criminal by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.
Comics writer Ed Brubaker, best known for his work on such series as Captain America and Criminal, has sold the crime drama Rising Suns to Fox and an untitled espionage drama to NBC.
The actresses’ costume in The Dark Knight Rises is reportedly “more tactical,” resembling the design created a decade ago for DC Comics by artist Darwyn Cooke. The Christopher Nolan-directed film opens on July 20, 2012.
Comic book writer Ed Brubaker says that the Incognito adaptation is shaping up quite nicely, while he’s “out of the loop” in the Sleeper front.
