Fresh on the heels of his upcoming adventure The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp, director Gore Verbinski is set to helm and produce a live action adaptation of the North Korea-set graphic novel Pyongyang by Guy Delisle.
New Regency announced Tuesday it’s teaming up with Verbinski’s production company Blind Wink on the film, about “outsourcing run amok when a young animator sent to North Korea is accused of espionage,” according to a press release. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty screenwriter Steve Conrad is working on the script.
