Nathan Never: his movie
from Variety site

PLATINUM FOR DREAMWORKS: Hollywood's infatuation with underground comics for movie ideas continues. DreamWorks has paid mid-six figures for the screen rights to Nathan Never, a comic published in Italy by Bonelli Editore and imported by Platinum Studios.
The storyline: Nathan Never's a 21st Century Dirty Harry who, in the wake of a vicious crime, is charged to protect the lone witness. He's an eccentric character named Luther, who's more than he appears to be. They form an unusual "48 Hours" type bond. The comic was acquired by DW's Walter Parkes and Glenn Williamson, and will be scripted by Walt Becker, who is making his directorial debut on "Buying the Cow," the comedy he wrote for Destination. He also wrote the best-selling book "Link." The film's being produced by Platinum chairman Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, co-produced by Platinum prexy Ervin Rustemagic and senior veep Gregory Noveck.
The comic was created by the Italy-based trio Michele Medda, Antonio Serra and Bepi Vigna, who've sold more than 25 million Nathan Never comics since creating the character in 1991. It's Platinum’s second big DreamWorks deal after "Cowboys & Aliens." They've also got "Million Dollar Heroes" at New Line and "Dead of Night" at Dimension with Breck Eisner directing. William Morris reps Platinum while Endeavor repped Becker.
