Several news outlets such as, Bleeding Cool and Variety before them, are reporting that series creator Garth Ennis has already penned a script for the adaptation and is shopping it around to directors!

Oddly enough, I’m okay with this. What say you Horse-Cock gang?
They seem pleased. So what say you?
