Matt Kindt's Mind MGMT #1 is one of the best ongoing series on the stands right now. That's relevant right now because apparently, the comic, published by Dark Horse, just might become a movie. According (exclusively) to The Hollywood Reporter, Ridley Scott's Scott Free production company has picked up the comic. Quoth the Reporter:
The book centers on a government agency consisting of psychic spies and their greatest asset, a man named Henry Lime. After he suffers a breakdown and loses control of his abilities, causing the populace of a town to kill each other, he goes on the run. Several years later, a true crime author named Meru, who was part of a flight where everyone mysteriously developed amnesia, is saved by Lime and begins to investigate the agency, uncovering her own secret connection to it.
A search for a writer to adapt is underway.
The article states that the project doesn't have a director just yet either. Still too soon for all that.
