“The Man with the Iron Fists” director RZA has signed on to helm an adaptation of Grant Morrison’s new comic “Happy!” says Heat Vision.
The story follows Nick Sax, an assassin who nearly dies after a hit goes bad. Inexplicably he begins to see Happy, a tiny blue horse whose optimistic disposition never sours.
Nick and his new friend team up to save the life of a troubled kid while trying to find redemption for Nick himself.
Grant Morrison will adapt the screenplay while Reginald Hudlin is producing. The trio will develop the project before seeking a studio or financier.
