Variety has learned that ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Goldeneye’ director Martin Campbell has signed on to take the helm of a feature film adaptation of Michelangelo La Neve’s 2005 graphic novel ‘Sebastian X.’

With ‘Deja Vu’ scribe Bill Marsilii on board to provide the screenplay, the plot centres on “an elite cop who, after a near-fatal injury, is implanted with the memories of the world’s most notorious terrorist — Sebastian X — in order to infiltrate his group before their next attack.”

‘Sebastian X’ will be co-produced by Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores of Voltage Films, Gale Anne Hurd through her Valhalla Motion Pictures, and the comics publisher, Humanoids.
