Danny McBride Turns Bad Guy “Hench”

Danny McBride (“Tropic Thunder”) is getting a comic book adapted into a film property with him in mind for the lead says Variety.

“Hench”, based on the graphic novel created by Adam Beechen and Mario Bello, has McBride playing a football player who suffers a career-ending injury and needs a job.

He then signs on as henchman to a successful villain. McBride will write the script with Shawn Harwell, the pair previously having penned scripts for HBO’s “Eastbound and Down”.
