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.
