Off the back of producing the successful but controversial sci-fi/Action “Godzilla vs. Kong” movie, Adam Wingard does not look like he’s going to be resting on his laurels anytime soon.
The American filmmaker and director have landed the role of directing and adapting “Hardcore” from a comic book series into a movie. The comic book series, written by Robert Kirkman (known popularly for creating “The Walking Dead” series) and Marc Silvestri is a sci-fi/Action thriller, something Wingard is not a stranger to.
The comic book follows the journey of a soldier who wants to save the world without having to play dirty. As of the time of this writing, the script for the adaptation, tailored to specific outlines made by Kirkman is said to have been completed before announcing Wingard as the director of the movie.
Wingard will be adapting the script with up-and-coming filmmaker Will Simmons. Although Wingard, alongside his company Montauk Chair, will produce the movie, Kirkman, Sean, and Bryan Furst are just some of the other executive producers that would have to work alongside Wingard at one point or the other.
Following the success of “Godzilla vs. Kong”, especially with the kaiju showdown amassing well over $400 million despite being released simultaneously on HBO max and theatrically, there is a lot to look forward to on Wingard’s new “hardcore” project.
