Refn Directs Comic Adaptation “Button Man”

Nicolas Winding Refn (“Drive”) is in talks to direct the comic adaptation “Button Man” at DreamWorks says Deadline.

“Judge Dredd” creator John Wagner co-wrote the graphic novel with Arthur Ranson about a hired gun offered a fortune to take part in a game organized by bored millionaires that sets trained killers against one another in a fight to the death.

When Exton gets disgusted and opts out, his only exit strategy might be to off the millionaires funding the competition. Roger Kass, Josh Braun and Michael De Luca will produce.
