A big screen outing of Kyle Starks’ graphic novel ‘Sexcastle’ is in the works over at 20th Century Fox with ‘Workaholics’ star Blake Anderson playing the title character.
Starks’ comic, which debuted last year from Image Comics, is a tribute to 80s action movies and follows Shane Sexcastle, the Former World’s Greatest Assassin, who leaves the world of killing and retires to a small rural town—only to be pulled back into the field.
Karl Hevacheck, Anderson’s ‘Workaholics’ director and co-star, will direct. Daniel and Matthew Libman (‘Happy Endings’) are scripting.
Anderson and Hevacheck will also produce the adaptation, alongside Anthony and Joe Russo (‘Captain America: Civil War’) and their Getaway Productions partner Mike Larocca.
