Revered Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo (the Anne Hathaway/Jason Sudeikis-led Colossal) and Robert Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment (The Walking Dead) are teaming to bring Ed Brisson and Michael Walsh's The Comeback to the big screen. The project originated as an Image Comics series that ran throughout 2013 for five issues.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures has nabbed the rights to the picture, which Vigalondo will direct and Kirkman will produce. Additional producers attached to the project include Vigalondo's creative partner, Nahikari Ipina, and Skybound Entertainment's David Alpert and Sean and Bryan Furst.
Often compared to director Rian Johnson's Joseph Gordon-Levitt/Bruce Willis-led Looper, the original Brisson/Walsh Image Comics series followed two men, Seth and Mark, who work for a company called Reconnect that specializes in going back in time to rescue a client's loved ones. When a mission goes awry and Seth meets a future version of himself, the duo find themselves on the run from both their employers and the supervising FBI.
Sony Pictures' The Comeback hasn't been given a release date.
