The next big ghost-hunting franchise might already be on its way.
According to Deadline, eOne is developing a new TV series based on Brett Murphy and Wilson Gandolpho’s Paranormal Hitmen comic books. Described as “Ghostbusters meets Pulp Fiction,” the series follows the misadventures of mob hitmen Gene Rizzo and Devon Grace.
The two get mistakenly recruited into a secret government agency that hunts down paranormal threats. Moreover, as they navigate this new line of work, they must also confront the ghosts of their pasts. The publishing of the Paranormal Hitmen started with writer Murphy and artist Gandolpho through the Behemoth Entertainment medium, and the first volume of which was released back in 1987. Behemoth is also said to develop video games and recently hit the headlines when it merged with Sumerian Records and Films last month.
The fans are already anticipated and are looking forward to what the creators have in store. They are intrigued to experience how each character comes to life, and it will altogether provide them a taste of standing in the characters’ shoes.
eOne will produce Paranormal Hitmen’s TV adaptation under late Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner’s Altar Rock banner. Murphy and Gandolfo will also executive produce alongside Josh Feldman. No writing team has been assembled for Paranormal Hitmen as of now. Regardless, it’s one of several projects that eOne currently has.
