Martin Campbell to Helm 'Sebastian X' Adaptation

Green Lantern director Martin Campbell will helm an adaptation of the graphic novel Sebastian X, Variety reports.

The project hails from Voltage Films, Valhalla Motion Pictures and Sebastian X publisher Humanoids. Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) is attached as a producer alongside Voltage's Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores and Humanoids' Pierre Spengler.

Sebastian X focuses on a top police officer's mission to infiltrate a terrorist group and preemptively thwart its next attack. In order to properly blend in, the cop gets implanted with the memories of the group's notorious leader, Sebastian X.

Bill Marsilii will pen the script based on the graphic novel, which was originally published by Humanoids in 2003. Sebastian X was written by Italian cartoonist Michelangelo La Neve and features art from current Marvel headliner Stuart Immonen (All-New Captain America, All-New X-Men).

Although Campbell's previous comics adaptation, 2011's Green Lantern, met with less-than-favorable reviews, his resume also includes 2006's Casino Royale, which kickstarted the lagging Bond franchise with a new, gritty tone and placed Daniel Craig in the lead role.
