Adaptation has X-Files vet in the cross-hairs

As studios look to the next “big thing” (it seems it’s shifting to ghosts), some companies are taking risks on genre-bending projects.

Platinum Studios and Fox21 are teaming up for an adaptation of the graphic novel “Gunplay.” But it won’t be for the big screen, instead writer-producer Glen Morgan (Willard, The X-Files, Black Christmas) is taking aim at making it a television series.

Jorge Vegas created the story of a buffalo soldier named Abner Meeks who must kill once a day using his demonic gun or suffer “soul-searing pain.”
