John Wells and Don Murphy, through their respective companies John Wells Prods. and Angryfilms, have teamed up to develop the independent comic The Forgotten for the big screen.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comic centers on a man who, no matter what he does or whom he meets, is forgotten five minutes later. While it gives him great power and leeway as far as investigations and problem-solving, it leaves him incredibly alone. When the son of a long-lost friend is charged wrongly with murder, he uses his powers to get to the bottom of a conspiracy.

Forgotten, published and co-created by Evan Young and Jareth Grealish, was unveiled in 2004 at the San Diego ComicCon. The duo published a four-issue series and a collectors edition.

No production date has been set.
