Adrian Askarieh, the producer of the Hitman movies, has optioned the movie rights to Spencer & Locke. Created by writer David Pepose and artist Jorge Santiago Jr., the comic follows a detective whose partner is his imaginary pet tiger from childhood. Published by Action Lab, the series, which launched in April, could have a log line that boils down to Calvin and Hobbes meets Sin City.

"I was hooked from the very first issue," said Askarieh. "There is something darkly visceral and uniquely cinematic about what David and Jorge have created."

Askarieh plans to pitch the project to Constantin Film, the company behind the Resident Evil franchise.
