Sleeper: Comic Adaptation Produced by Sam Raimi

October 15, 2008–Warner has hired Brad Ingelsby to write “Sleeper,” an adaptation of the DC Comics-Wildstorm comic being produced by Sam Raimi with Star Road Entertainment partner Josh Donen.

The comic, written by Ed Brubaker, focuses on an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass the ability on to others through skin contact.

Ingelsby made his first script sale in March, selling “Low Dweller” to Relativity Media for $500,000 against $1 million. Ridley Scott will direct and Leonardo DiCaprio will star.
