Jim Uhls Penning "Rex Mundi" for Johnny Depp to Star



Screenwriter Jim Uhls is on duty to pen the script of a film adaptation of "Rex Mundi" for Johnny Depp to star in also produce.

"Fight Club" screenwriter Jim Uhls gets a big work to do. The Los Angeles Times reported that the man has been hired to adapt a series of graphic novels into a feature as a vehicle for Johnny Depp to star in and produce via his Infinitum Nihil production company.

Entitled "Rex Mundi" just like the series' name, the project is likely to also present a tale of murder, sin, and redemption that the original version has thoroughly described. "It's a noir-ish Raiders of the Lost Ark," so Uhls revealed to the Times. "There are murders and a mystery, and the lead character discovers a massive conspiracy, biblical in its origin." Depp himself is said to portray a pathologist investigating the death of a priest who found him as an orphan.

Formerly published by Image Comics before being acquired by Dark Horse Comics this year, "Rex Mundi" is developed by duo Arvid Nelson and Eric Johnson with Juan Ferreyra doing the artwork. It takes a look on an alternate 1933 in which Europe remains dominated by the Catholic Church and the Protestant Reformation never occurred while the rest of the world still consists of colonies.
