Taika Waititi will direct an adaptation of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Mœbius’ The Incal

Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) is set to direct a feature adaptation of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Mœbius’ graphic novel, The Incal, for Humanoids and Primer Entertainment.

Waititi will co-write the script with Jemaine Clement (What We Do in the Shadows, Flight of the Conchords) and Peter Warren (Ghost Team, The History of Us).

John Difool, a low-class detective in a degenerate dystopian world, finds his life turned upside down when he discovers an ancient, mystical artefact called The Incal. Difool’s adventures bring him into conflict with the galaxy’s greatest warrior, the Metabaron, and pit him against the awesome powers of the Technopope. These encounters and many more make up a tale of comic and cosmic proportions. Visionary storyteller Jodorowsky’s epic mythology and the late Moebius’s incredible art blend perfectly for this legendary spiritual space adventure series.

“The films and graphic novels of Alejandro Jodorowsky have influenced me and so many others for so long,” said Waititi. “I was stunned to be given the opportunity to bring his iconic characters to life and I am grateful to Alejandro, Fabrice and everyone at Humanoids for trusting me to do so.”

“When Humanoids’ CEO Fabrice Giger introduced me to Taika Waititi’s work, it became obvious to me that he was the one,” said Jodorowsky. “I fully trust Taika’s creativity to give The Incal a stunning take, intimate and at the same time of cosmic proportions.”

It is going to be a hell of a thing to adapt, but there is great potential for a deep, weird and visually stunning movie.
