Tim Miller has inked a deal with Legendary Pictures to direct their upcoming live action adaptation of the Warren Ellis comic book series, Gravel.

The comics follow William Gravel, a soldier in the British S.A.S. who uses his skills in dark magic to moonlight and battle supernatural beings for clients in order to make some extra cash. Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell are writing the script.

Richard Alexander and Warren Ellis are producing with the studio.

The director has also joined Fox's X-Men Origins: Deadpool, the spinoff film that is still in development and based on the character that Ryan Reynolds played in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

This project is still in development.
