Alex Tse Penning Battling Boy


The Hollywood Reporter says that Alex Tse (Watchmen) will adapt Battling Boy for Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B and Paramount Pictures.

The film, based on the upcoming graphic novel written and illustrated by Paul Pope, follows the son of a god who comes down from the top of a mountain at his father’s urging to rid the giant, continent-sized city of Monstropolis of a plague of beasts.

First Second Books will publish the graphic novel in the spring.
