Movie Based On THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE In Development

A film based on Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore's The Strange Talent of Luther Strode is in development at a new company recently formed by the executive team behind The Witcher and Bloodshot.

A film based on the 2011 6-issue Image Comics series The Strange Talent of Luther Strode is in development at Allnighter, a new production company formed by Dinesh Shamdasani, Amanda Kruse, and Hunter Gorinson- the former Hivemind executive team behind The Expanse, Bloodshot and The Witcher.

Writer Justin Jordan and artist Tradd Moore are involved with the film adaptation as producers, with Jordan actually penning the script. In a statement provided to THR, Jordan remarked, "Luther Strode remains one of my very favorite things I've ever worked on and getting the chance to bring it to a new audience as a film is exciting beyond belief. Especially since Allnighter is dedicated to staying true to all of the foundations — from the tone to the mythology, and, of course, the kinetic action exemplified by Tradd’s artwork — that people have loved about the comic."

Shamdasani added, " Not only is it a master-class in the best that comics have to offer, but it’s horrifying, heartfelt, and funny all at once. Whether you like superheroes or horror, Strode is the rare series that equally speaks to the core of both genres and creates fascinating new dimensions in the process."

Fans of the series have described it as a captivating tale that's not shy when it comes to graphic violence and gore. On the surface, Luther Strode appears to be a standard, Spider-Man like tale about a nerdy student who suddenly gets superpowers to fight off bullies and get the girl.  However, the fast-pace, plot twists and artwork transform the title into something special.

Luther Strode is just your average geek ― until he sends for an exercise course from the back of an old comic book. What he gets is the instruction manual from a murder cult as old as mankind that does everything that it promised ― and more!
