Fede Alvarez, who directed and co-wrote this summer’s box office hit, “Don’t Breathe,” has reportedly signed with Sony Pictures to direct “Incognito,” an adaptation of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ limited comic series of the same name.
The story follows “Zach Overkill, a super villain who is in the Witness Protection Program after testifying against a powerful hero, The Black Death,” reports Indiewire. “Though required to take a drug that eliminates his superpowers and work a nondescript mail job, Zach becomes restless and finds a way to regain his powers, forcing him to decide whether to use them again or stay in the safety of his regular job.”
Daniel Casey, who wrote “10 Cloverfield Lane” and James Franco’s film “Kin,” has been brought on board to work on the script.
Sony Pictures has not announced a release date for this film yet.
After the success of his low-budget film, which grossed over $140 million worldwide, it’s no surprise Alvarez has become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after directors.
