Fox21 is teaming with Platinum Studios to develop a TV series based on Platinum's graphic novel Gunplay, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Final Destination writer-producer Glen Morgan will adapt the novel, created and written by Jorge Vega.
Gunplay centers on Abner Meeks, a buffalo soldier condemned to roam the Old West with a hellish curse slung at his waist: a demonic shooting iron that forces him to kill once a day or suffer soul-searing pain.
" 'Gunplay' is one of those rare combinations of fantastically created characters and wonderfully told narrative, which creates an inventive canvas from which to play," Platinum Studios chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg said.
Added Fox21 president Chris Carlisle, "It is a unique story of an ordinary man who must live with an extraordinary curse."
