Universal Pictures has bought the rights to the new comic book The Leading Man from Oni Press.

The comic book, written by B. Clay Moore and illustrated by Jeremy Haun, follows the adventures of the world's biggest movie star, Nick Walter. The Hollywood Reporter adds Walter uses his celebrity, access, lifestyle and his films' international location shoots as a cover for his real job, that of an international spy.

The first issue of The Leading Man was published July 13. Marc Platt will produce through his Marc Platt Productions.

No word on a shooting schedule.
