Variety reports that C2 Entertainment has begun feature development on Dana Valentine: Brains, Beauty and Bullets.

The comic-book, written and illustrated by Daniel Cooney for Red Eye Press, is based on a femme-fatale.

Dana Valentine: Brains, Beauty and Bullets focuses on a female contract killer. The story delves into the "impact of her morally questionable profession, which makes her a liability to everyone she has met."

The comic property has 12 issues and three trade paperback graphic novels; they are "Fully Loaded," "Red Rain" and "The Killing Moon."

A fourth graphic novel is planned to be published in the fourth quarter of 2010.
