Heavy Metal’s upcoming ‘Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter’ is set to be turned into a movie after generating lots of buzz at Comic-Con last month. Paramount has landed the publication’s rights. Creator Daniel LuVisi will produce with Scott Aversano. Executive producers are Peter Levin Russell Binder and Stephan Lokotsch.
Heavy Metal describes the coffee table book, due out later this month or in early September, as a precursor to the company’s forthcoming graphic novel series: “It is a character bible and prologue book that introduces you to Gabriel, the hero of our story, as he personally unravels to his audience the intricacies of his world, set in a time-transcending and parallel universe that is inhabited by a roster of colorful and deadly characters. Join Gabriel in his quest for revenge and the journey he will embark on by traveling through more than 200 pages of history, character art, bios, and other forms of pleasure and pain.”
