Adam Wingard to direct a film based on the Hardcore comic book

Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs Kong did rather well at the box office and he has signed up to direct Hardcore for Universal Pictures.

Here is the comic book synopsis and it sounds a little like the recent Possessor film.

From the minds of Robert Kirkman & Marc Silvestri!

Imagine being able to take over the body of anyone on Earth in order to track down a rogue nuke or assassinate a dictator. Sound crazy? Not for Agent Drake and the Hardcore Program. They can turn anyone – your neighbor, your co-worker, your spouse-into a human drone to get to targets normal soldiers can’t.

Drake is the best soldier Hardcore has to offer until he’s stranded in a body with only 72 hours to discover who’s hijacked the Program. But who can you trust when your enemy can change their appearance as easy as someone changes a shirt?

Andy Diggle (THIEF OF THIEVES, Losers) and Alessandro Vitti (Secret Warriors) present a new Skybound Original that shows you how to save the world without getting your hands dirty.

It is not a comic I have read, but I like the sound of it and some potential there for a great action flick.

According to Deadline, Wingard will co-write the film alongside Will Simmons. Skybound and Wingard’s Montauk Chair are producing. Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst will produce on behalf of Skybound. Wingard will executive produce. Universal Pictures’ EVP of Production, Matt Reilly will oversee the project for the studio.
