Geez, another movie about the evils of the CIA? Seriously, Hollywood must really hate America’s intelligence gathering agency, because here comes another one. This time it’s a live-action adaptation of the Vertigo comic book “The Losers”, which was announced a while back with “Stomp the Yard’s” Sylvain White attached to direct. Now comes word that “Watchmen’s” own Jeffrey Dean Morgan is ready to step into yet another comic book movie, this time as the lead.
According to THR:
Sylvain White is directing the adaptation of the Vertigo book, which follows a special forces team betrayed by their handler and left for dead. The Losers regroup in the interest of revenge and the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA.
Morgan would play Clay, the group’s leader, whose signature look favors black suits without ties.
Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt worked on the script.
First the Comedian, and now “The Losers”. If you didn’t think Jeffrey Dean Morgan was cool after his appearance on the Supernatural TV show, this should just about end all debate.
