Tim Miller has been set by Legendary Pictures to direct Gravel, a live action adaptation of the Warren Ellis comic book series. Legendary will produce the project with Rick Alexander, with Ellis as executive producer and Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell are writing the script.
Published by Avatar Press, Gravel revolves around the character William Gravel, a soldier in the British S.A.S. who uses his skills in dark magic to moonlight and battle supernatural beings for clients in order to make some extra cash. Miller last year was hired by Fox to direct X-Men Origins: Deadpool, the spinoff film that is in development and based on the character that Safe House star Ryan Reynolds played in Wolverine.
