GiantKiller Pictures has hired John Fusco (Hidalgo) to adapt Cliff Graham’s Day of War, the first book in the Lion of War series that debuts in the spring. The books center on the early life of David prior to his tenure as king of Israel. Director David L. Cunningham (The Seeker: The Dark is Rising) remarked,
“[Graham] has written a dynamic series that is highly cinematic. He has found a fresh, inspired take on the ancient story of King David and his lethal outcasts, the Mighty Men, that has stood the test of time for thousands of years. The gritty characters, their complicated lives and the supernatural themes make for an exciting combination.” [Risky Business]
With five books on the way, there should be plenty of material for an historical action franchise. In 3D of course. At this stage, I’m definitely intrigued by the project, but I’d be 17% more »

John Fusco, the writer behind Hidalgo and The Forbidden Kingdom, has signed on to adapt Cliff Graham's book Day of War for the screen, a Biblical-ish epic about the young King David. Think 300 with more slingshots. The book's the first of a series called "Lion of War" that Graham, a Us military veteran, is planning.The story follows a warrior called Benaiah who joins a band of mercenaries led by the young David, still a warlord rather than a King, and leading a motley crew who could turn on one another at any moment.The film's set to be directed by David L. Cunningham, who - god help us - brought us The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising, a pretty appalling adaptation of a great book. Let's hope he doesn't make the hero a Yank this time around, and that it ends up rather better. »
