Hollywood lines up Manchette's Sniper
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Jacques Tardihooray for Hollywood 14 Nov 2012 1:33 AM

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Jean-Patrick Manchette's novel The Prone Gunman, from which Jacques Tardi adapted the graphic novel Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot (we gave it a different name for our edition), is on the way to a major-motion-picture adaptation with Sean Penn in negotiations to play the lead, ruthless assassin Martin Terrier. No director yet; our own Kim Thompson suggests Nicolas Winding Refn or William Friedkin in French Connection flashback mode, if the producers are listening.

We trust that Jefferey Wright is in talks for the Stanley role.
