Showtime Targets "100 Bullets"

Development continues on adapting the graphic novel "100 Bullets", created by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso for the Showtime network, with David S. Goyer ("Blade") attached to write and produce.

The Eisner and Harvey Award-winning comic book "100 Bullets" series was published by DC Comics under its Vertigo imprint, with a print run of one hundred issues.

The initial plot of "100 Bullets" hinges on the question of whether people would take the chance to get away with revenge, with mysterious 'Agent Graves' approaching someone who has been the victim of a terrible wrong.

Graves gives the individual a handgun, '100 bullets' that are untraceable and documentation of the person primarily and personally responsible for the recipient's woes.

Although murders enabled by Graves are presented as justifiable, candidates are neither rewarded or punished for taking up the offer.

Graves was previously the leader of "The Minutemen," a group of seven who served as the enforcers of a clandestine organization known as "The Trust", formed by the heads of 13 powerful European families that controlled much of the Old World's combined wealth and industry.
