Warner Bros has acquired the movie rights to Matt Kindt‘s graphic novel 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man, which is published by Dark Horse Comics. HeatVision is reporting that the studio has already signed Dustin Lance Black, the Oscar-winning writer of Milk, to pen and direct the adaptation.
Publisher’s Weekly describes the story as being “a modern fable, exploring the life of the giant man, Craig Pressgang, through the experiences of three women—his mother, wife and daughter.” The story chronicles Craig’s journey from birth to his growth to over three stories tall. Black’s take will focus on “the father-daughter relationship and soften the melancholic ending.” Sounds like a risky but possibly artful project.
