Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to the Image Comics series Nonplayer for producers Roy Lee and David Heyman.

Nate Simpson created the comic book series, which went on sale in April, and centers around a young woman named Dana Stevens, who creates a digital fantasy world to escape her humdrum work day. Instead of being a lowly office worker, in her fantasy world named Jarvath, Dana Stevens is a fierce warrior. Here's a description of Nonplayer from the comic book's official website.

"Mid-21st century America doesn't have much to offer Dana Stevens, but there's plenty for her to live for inside Warriors of Jarvath, the world's most popular full-immersion online game. In the real world, she's a tamale delivery girl who still lives with her mom, but inside the game she's an elite assassin. When she gets the drop on King Heremoth, a celebrity non-player character, she thinks she's finally got a shot at fame. But when she slays Queen Fendra, the King's reaction is disconcertingly realistic. Something's amiss in Jarvath, and the effects may reverberate well beyond the boundaries of the game."

No screenwriter or director have been attached to Nonplayer at this time, but Warner Bros. is envisioning the movie as a tentpole project.
