Die Graphic Novel "The Interman" von Jeff Parker soll verfilmt werden....
"It's an adventure story about a man named Van Meach, who has some physical peculiarities that make him able to handle extremely dangerous work. He was the original test-tube baby from a project called Interman that wanted to create Cold War operatives known as Adaptives. Result: you can drop Van anywhere in the world and he'll acclimate, and even learn the native language in hours. He can even adapt to more extreme environments, like the arctic or desert.
The international alliance that sponsored Interman becomes aware of Van, who does mysterious work that pays as well as what a hitman or mercenary earns. Recovered files suggest that the grown Intermen would be a terrible threat to any target they chose. In a post-Cold War world, Meach looks like an enormous security risk, and the alliance reforms to send hired killers around the world to close this file permanently. Now our hero, who doesn't even carry a gun, has to adapt to a new and deadlier world... or become extinct."

But I am working on Volume 2, and this summer there will be a 32 page
special with three short stories, each focusing on one of the main
characters, Van, May, and Outcault. I'll let you know when that book is
going to be solicited. [...]
Jeff Parker schrieb uns seine Gedanken zur Verfilmung...
It's too early to say anything yet since the writer hasn't been picked. The list of writers being considered is very impressive, though! While the books are always going to be my main concern, I have to say that I'm pretty
optimistic about what Valhalla and Paramount will do with the movie. I'm currently beginning work on Interman Volume 2, and I'll give you news on that when I can. [...]
