David Yates (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”) is attached to direct a film adaptation of the espionage comic “Who is Jake Ellis?” at Fox and Chernin Entertainment.
The story follows a former CIA analyst and mercenary spy on the run, protected only by the mysterious title character “Jake Ellis” who is seemingly invisible to everyone except the analyst.
The project is now out to writers, while Peter Chernin is producing. Yates will shoot the “Tarzan” reboot at Warners first.
