Incognito: 20th Century Fox to develop the graphic novel adaptation

  • 20th Century Fox has acquired rights to "Incognito", a graphic novel adaptation about a supervillain who tries to survive in the witness protection program after he rats out his boss.

  • Robert Schenkkan ("The Kentucky Cycle") will write the screenplay. Chernin Entertainment's Peter Chernin and Circle of Confusion's David Engel will produce.

  • The story centers on a ruthless villain, Zack Overkill, who after going into witness protection, he's given a drug to dull his powers and takes a normal guy job as delivering the mail. By the time he discovers that messing with certain drugs restores his power, he has developed something of a conscience. He becomes a vigilante and soon, his exploits become known to The Black Death, who is out for revenge.
