David Lowery to Adapt and Direct ‘Torso’

David Lowery has signed on to adapt and direct TorsoAin't Them Bodies Saints director David Lowery has signed on to resurrect the languishing graphic novel adaptation Torso.

The project is adapted from Brian Bendis' graphic novel that is based on the true story of Elliot Ness' time in Cleveland, after he took down legendary Chicago gangster Al Capone. He becomes obsessed with tracking down a serial killer who was leaving human torsos behind with taunting notes to the police.

Brian Bendis and Michael Andreyko are producing alongside David Halbrooks and Toby Halbrooks. Here's what Brian Bendis had to say about the project.

"It's a cool true story that very little people know of. You think you know the story of Elliot Ness? You don't. You know the story of serial killers? You don't. And that's how I kept the faith."

No production schedule was given. David Fincher had previously been attached to direct back in 2006.

Torso is in development .
