We know from this interview that Matthew Fox from Lost is already great at being able to laugh at himself, and now it looks like he’s going to get some more practice. Today it’s being reported that he’s set to star in the totally not gay-sounding Warner Bros project, Billy Smoke.
The story centers on an elite hit man who’s nearly killed during a botched job and realizes that his only way to find redemption is to rid the world of all assassins.
The comicbook series, written by B. Clay Moore and illustrated by Eric Kim, will be published by Oni Press next year.
That’s right, another comicbook has been greenlit before it’s even been published. And with a name like Billy Smoke, I’m guessing he somehow rids the world of assassins through elaborate song and dance numbers. Or maybe he’s a tobacco ad from the 30s. In either case, I see myself not caring.
