Chalk up yet another graphic novel to be adapted to the big screen. This novel, however, differs from the common sort as it is neither fantasy nor sci-fi. This sucker takes us right back to the days of World War II.

Rogue Adapts Lost Squad

According to Variety, Rogue Pictures has bought the rights to Chris Kirby's comicbook series Lost Squad. Rogue has already selected Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter to produce.

Lost Squad chronicles the adventures of a ragtag unit of Allied soldiers who fight Hitler's occult agents and other supernatural threats during WWII. OK, OK, before you call me out, I know the comics have some fantastical elements, but I couldn't get away from a little bit of writer's block without going with the 'common sort' route. Forgive?

But where were we?

Devil's Due Publishing began the series -- illustrated by Alan Robinson -- last fall and has published five issues.

Project is the second Askarieh and Alter have in development at Rogue, the genre arm of Universal-based Focus Features. Earlier this year, the duo set up Hack/Slash, based on a Devil's Due comic about a woman who hunts down slashers; writer-director Todd Lincoln is attached.

The producers also are developing a feature at Fox based on the video game Hitman, with Vin Diesel's bald mug attached.

Stay tuned for updates.
