Radical Publishing has announced that director John "Face/Off" Woo will helm the film adaptation of "Caliber", based on Radical Publishing's "Caliber: First Canon of Justice", created by Sam Sarkar.

Caliber will be produced by Woo's Lion Rock Productions, Johnny Depp's Infinitum Nihil and Radical Pictures, the motion picture division of Radical Publishing.

"Having John Woo on board for this film and Johnny Depp's company producing is a dream come true," said Radical Publishing President Barry Levine.

"I got to fly to China and see John Woo...hear John's vision and thoughts on Caliber...he is the right kind of artist we needed to bring Sam's work to life..."

"For me as a writer, the dream of telling this story and opening up the world of 'Caliber' goes back more than 12 years, " Sarkar said.

"But I've been a fan of John Woo's for even longer than that...I think it is a chance to create something that will really entertain and resonate with people all over the world...
