Blake Lively is set to star as a secret assassin in Netflix’s adaptation of Dark Horse’s Lady Killer, with Diablo Cody penning the screenplay.
Netflix’s comic book adaptation women killer casts Blake Lively with writing Diablo Cody. city of sin, Hellboy, The mask and 300 are all examples of great movies adapted over the years from comic books published by Mike Richardson’s Dark Horse Comics. More recently, Dark Horse is working The Umbrella Academy and Polar have been adapted into streaming titles thanks to the publisher’s agreement with Netflix. It was also recently announced that Dark Horse’s mysterious girl will come to Netflix starring Tiffany Haddish and directed by McG.
Now, another Dark Horse title is set to be adapted as part of the publisher’s deal with Netflix. As reported by Deadline, Lively should star in women killer, based on the comic of the same name. Oscar winner Juno and Jennifer’s body writer Cody will pen the script. Written by Joëlle Jones and Jamie S. Rich, women killer is about a seemingly normal 1950s housewife named Josie Schuller who leads a double life as a highly skilled assassin.
women killer is indeed another dark outing for Lively, whose last two films were the revenge thriller The rhythm section and black comedy A simple favor. Cody too can get dark at times, as shown in his subversive horror flick Jennifer’s body, though she’s generally known for her lesser fare as the Oscar-winning actress Juno and Charlize Theron’s most recent comedy harried mom tuly. women killer indeed takes a dark route with its portrayal of a suburban housewife who doubles as an assassin, but it’s also known for its humor, making it a perfect title for Cody.
