Based on the Image comic…
THR reports that David Yates has signed on to helm Who Is Jake Ellis? based on the Image comic book of the same name, written by Nathan Edmonson and illustrated by Tonci Zonjic.
Yates is reportedly still planning on helming a new Tarzan adaptation first. The script for Who Is Jake Ellis? Below is an official synopsis for the comic:
Jon Moore is the most sought after spy-for-hire in Europe's criminal world. This is because of Jake Ellis, a psychic man who is invisible to everyone except Moore. When a deal goes bad, the only one who can protect Moore from Europe's most dangerous criminals is Jake Ellis. No one but Moore can see Jake Ellis. But Jake Ellis can see everything.
The series ran for five issues in 2011 and was followed by a sequel series, Where Is Jake Ellis? in 2012.
The project is set up at 20th Century Fox and will be produced by Peter Chernin with Ford Lytle Gilmore executive producing.
