Scout Comics' & State Street Pictures Developing Film Based On ASSASSIN & SON Comic Book Series

Scout Comics' & State Street Pictures Developing Film Based On ASSASSIN & SON Comic Book Series

May 4th, 2022 -- As reported in DEADLINE earlier today, State Street Pictures has optioned the comic book ASSASSIN AND SON, created and written by Shad Gaspard and Marc Copani with art by Eder Messiah.  Scout Comics & Entertainment, who published the comic, is attached to produce along with State Street.
 
Donovan Braddock is a one-man killing unit who works with a team of covert assassins known as “The Horsemen.” When Braddock finds love, and makes a family of his own, he attempts to leave that life of violence behind. But he discovers that his old life still torments him when his wife is murdered in front of him and his young son. Now, with nothing to live for, this tragic event sends father and son on an epic journey of revenge and consequence.
 
Gaspard and Copani are former professional WWE wrestlers who teamed up to write ASSASSIN AND SON after retiring from wrestling. Tragically, Shad Gaspard passed away in May 2020 while swimming in Venice Beach with his young son when the two were caught in a riptide, shortly before the publication of ASSASSIN AND SON #1. Gaspard was recently inducted into the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame posthumously.
 
“We’re thrilled at the opportunity to bring Shad and Marc’s comic to life. What excites us creatively is the balance of hard-hitting action and emotional themes presented in the source material," said Lawrence Mott, Creative Executive at State Street.
"We met Shad at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019," said Don Handfield of Scout Comics. "He was known for his brawn in the world of wrestling, but what we were taken by was his humor, intelligence and creative genius. We were blown away by his and Marc's comic, and we're proud to bring it to the world. We are happy that his legacy has a chance to live on through this partnership with State Street."
 
State Street recently wrapped On the Come Up, Angie Thomas’ best-selling follow up to The Hate U Give, which they also produced. In addition, Street Street has produced the hit Barbershop franchise for MGM, Soul FoodFaster starring Dwayne Johnson, and Men of Honor starring Oscar winners Cuba Gooding Jr., Robert De Niro, and Charlize Theron, among other films. 
 
Scout Comics & Entertainment was founded in 2015 and has over 200 titles in their catalog. Scout books have sold to Disney, Amazon Studios, and FilmNation, among others.

Summary

Philip Blank is the top agent for the sci-fi spy organization W.O.R.L.D.E., keeping capitalism safe from aliens, time travelers, and maladjusted geniuses off their meds. But lately he’s been having doubts about his work, wondering if there might be more to life than missions and mega-violence. This starts Philip on a death-or-more-death journey through the weirdest W.O.R.L.D.E. has to offer; epicurean terrorist organizations, horny robots, alien origin stories, ex-spies with metal eyes, and a web of secrets and lies of Blank’s own making.
 


Quotes From The Creative Team


“We wanted this to be a book in the tradition of Geof Darrow’s Hard Boiled or Shaolin Cowboy.  Big ideas and big feelings; high-scifi, and inventive action. It’s taken years to get it just right, but that effort has resulted in something surprising and special.” — Deniz Camp (creator/author)
 
“Working on each page turned out to be a little adventure with its own challenges and interesting discoveries. And, perhaps, this is the most important thing I would like to express... That the reader, too, should go on an adventure in the pages of our story. May they find Waldo there! Who knows? (Not a Spoiler).” — Filya Bratukhin (artist)
 
“This project has been a long time in the making. It's a true passion project for all involved and I'm proud to be part of such a great team. A lot of hard work went into it, and I'm excited for people to get their hands on it.” — Jason Wordie (colorist)
 
“Getting to see Filya and Jason’s art on this series has been the highlight of the past few months. Every new page just melts my mind, and I can’t wait for people to see what everyone has done on this comic.” — Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou (letters)

Summary

As the Mega Centurions, Cassidy, Reggie, and Thad saved the world from an alien invasion led by Prince Venkor. Unfortunately, things went downhill after that. They lost their powers and were unable to prove they were the Mega Centurions. Now, they work stressful jobs in the big city and struggle to pay the rent. Things change once they meet the Grey Knight, an interstellar mercenary and former henchman for the prince. Grey warns of a second invasion and asks for their help in protecting the Earth. Can she be trusted and can they be heroes without powers?

Quotes “This story was originally born from a joke about how the Power Rangers were able to do well in school when they were always teleporting off to fight Rita before morphing into something a little more grounded. This book has been years in the making and I’m excited for people to finally be able to see it in full after so long. We’re pleased to be working with Scout and hope that people enjoy it.” – Jon Parrish

 

“I just want to say that I have been a fan of super sentai since I was a kid in the eighties as well as the mecha genre and it's a dream come true to finally draw our own version of it. It's been a joy working on this book. And I hope the readers will like it.” – Dexter Wee
