The Hollywood Reporter indicates that WB has hired screenwriter John Cox to pen their big-screen version of "Sgt. Rock," a long-gestating project based on a classic comic book series.

Says THR: "John Cox has been hired to write "Sgt. Rock," an adaptation of DC Comics’ World War II adventure series being produced by Joel Silver for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Sgt. Frank Rock was the leader of his infantry unit, Easy Company. He first appeared in a 1959 issue of "Our Army at War." In 1977, with the character’s steadily rising popularity, the comic was renamed "Sgt. Rock" and ran until 1988. The property has long been in development at Warners, with such scribes as Brian Helgeland, John Milius, David Peoples, Jeffrey Boam and Steven De Souza having tackled the adaptation."

I remember Ahnold being cast in this movie about 14 times.
