A History of Violence: According to Variety, David Cronenberg is set to helm an adaptation of A History of Violence at New Line Cinema. Book is the first in the Paradox Graphic Mystery line published by Paradox Press/DC Comics.

Second book in the series was Road To Perdition, which was adapted into the film toplined by Tom Hanks and helmed by Sam Mendes, but the two are unrelated in terms of story.

Plot of the graphic novel follows an ordinary family's life after the father receives unwanted national attention for a seemingly vigilante-like self-defense killing at his diner and his previously unknown past is dredged up. Novel was penned by Judge Dredd creator John Wagner.
