Lionsgate has acquired the screen rights to God and California, a novel by author and cartoonist Chris Millis.

According to Variety, Millis will adapt the story of an Iraq war vet and a disgraced Catholic priest who travel from Gotham to California in a pink 1975 El Dorado in a week, breaking the Ten Commandments one by one.

The film hasn't been cast yet, but Millis said it could go any number of ways. "The protagonist is a young, early- to mid-20s guy, and then there's a mentor figure who's the drive-along partner," he explained. "I usually leave the roles open to interpretation -- I'm surprised at who people suggest."

No production date has been set.
