The book was previously adapted into a graphic novel by Jacques Tardi, which was nominated for two Eisner Awards. Another Jean-Patrick Manchette adaptation, The Gunman, is set for release next year, starring Sean Penn, Idris Elba and Javier Bardem.

Howard A. Rodman (Savage Grace, August) is on board to write the screenplay adaptation, with Andrew Lauren and Laura Bickford producing. No production schedule was given at this time.
