Jeffrey Dean Morgan Joins “The Losers”

“Watchmen,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Supernatural” star Jeffrey Dean Morgan is in negotiations to board the comic book adaptation “The Losers” for Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures reports the trades.

Sylvain White is directing the adaptation of the Vertigo book, which follows a special forces team betrayed by their handler and left for dead.

The Losers regroup in the interest of revenge and the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests.

Morgan would play Clay, the group’s leader, whose signature look favors black suits without ties. Morgan is also shooting the Hammer Films thriller “The Resident” with Hilary Swank around the same time so schedules are currently being worked out.

Joel Silver, Akiva Goldsman, Kerry Foster and Sarah Aubrey are producing. Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt worked on the script.
