Guy Ritchie to Adapt His Own Gamekeeper for WB

First Virgin comic book to make the leap...

by | July 27, 2007 | Comments

You may know Guy Ritchie from movies like Lock, Stock and Snatch, but he also co-wrote a comic book called Gamekeeper — which is about to be made into a movie by Warner Bros.

This will mark the first Virgin Comics title to hit the big screen. Ritchie’s Gamekeeper is part of a "Director’s Cut" roster that also includes Terry Gilliam, John Woo, and Jonathan Mostow. According to Variety, the story "revolves around the reclusive caretaker of a Scottish estate with infinite knowledge of the behaviors of all animal species. When the alleged killer of his son surfaces, the caretaker finds that Europe’s urban jungle is not so unlike that of the natural landscape to which he’s accustomed."

Sounds pretty interesting. Andy Diggle is Ritchie’s co-creator on the comic book. The director will helm (and probably write) the project for producer Joel Silver.
