The Gotham Group has acquired rights to Mike Jones' screenplay The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break, based on the novel by Steven Sherrill.

According to Variety, the live-action project centers on the mythical half-man, half-bull minotaur who was supposedly slain by Theseus 3,000 years ago and now lives a lonely life in a Wichita trailer park, making ends meet as a short-order cook in a rundown diner.

Sherrill's book was first published in 2000; The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break is currently out to directors.

No production date has been set.
