Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ “Incognito” is coming out of hiding thanks to 20th Century Fox.
Deadline reports that Fox has acquired the screen rights for the comic book series written by Brubaker and illustrated by Phillips. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan will write the screenplay, with Chernin Entertainment’s Peter Chernin and Circle of Confusion’s David Engel producing.
“Incognito” focuses on Zack Overkill, a super strong ex-villain who goes into witness protection after selling out his boss, The Black Death. He quickly tires of his civilian life and becomes a vigilante, inadvertently drawing the attention and ire of a vengeful Black Death.
“He’s not your typical villain and I was trying to blend the trappings of pulp, comic and noir genres,” Brubaker said of “Incognito” in an interview with Deadline. “Zack was raised to be his world’s equivalent of a supervillain. We’ve all seen the story of a good person who goes undercover and gets corrupted. This is a bad person forced to live among regular people, and how he’s affected by that. He once ran around with a mask, but now he’s got the fake name and the fake job. My goal was to have you rooting for him as he grows a conscience.”
