THOR: LOVE & THUNDER Director Taika Waititi To Helm Adaptation Of Sci-Fi Graphic Novel THE INCAL

Taika Waititi seems to be determined to attach his name to as many projects as possible, as the Thor: Love and Thunder director has now signed on to helm an adaptation of Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Incal.

Taika Waititi is fast becoming one of the most highly sought-after - not to mention hardest working - filmmakers in Hollywood. Currently juggling several different projects as director, he recently found time to play the villain in the upcoming Free Guy, and is also the process of developing his mysterious Star Wars movie for Disney/Lucasfilm.

Now, the prolific actor/director has signed on to helm a feature adaptation of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Moebius' cult '70s graphic novel, The Incal.

The Incal tells the story of "shabby P.I. John Difool, who happens upon a mystical artifact known as the Incal — an object of great power coveted by many factions across the galaxy. As Difool learns of the Incal’s powers and purpose, he — along with a ragtag crew of unlikely cohorts — reluctantly embarks on what begins as an improbable mission to save the universe, and slowly becomes a spiritual journey examining the duality and meaning of existence."

Waititi will also pen the script along with What We Do in the Shadows and Flight of the Conchords collaborator Jemaine Clement and Peter Warren.

“The films and graphic novels of Alejandro Jodorowsky have influenced me and so many others for so long. I was stunned to be given the opportunity to bring his iconic characters to life and I am grateful to Alejandro, Fabrice and everyone at Humanoids for trusting me to do so,” said Waititi.

What do you guys make of this news? Any fans of the graphic novel out there? Check out a video the folks at Humanoids were good enough to share with us below.
