Kyle Starks’ graphic novel SEXCASTLE has signed up Daniel Libman and Matthew Libman to adapt the property for the screen. Captain America: Civil War‘s Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are producing the film.
The graphic novel is a throwback to 80s action movies centered on the world’s former great assassin, who leaves the world of killing and retires to a small town only to be pulled back in at the beginning of the story.
Blake Anderson will star in the title role with Kyle Newacheck set to direct. Newacheck and Anderson are best known for their work on Comedy Central’s Workaholics. Newacheck directs, edits, and produces the series while Anderson is a co-creator, writer, producer, and star.
The Libmans previously wrote on Happy Endings, Bad Teacher, Marry Me, and Dr. Ken. They are repped by UTA.
