Paramount Picks Up Kill Them All; James Coyne To Write Film Adaptation

by Erik Amaya

 

Paramount is finally getting in the comic book movie business.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has optioned the rights to Kyle Starks’ Kill Them All. The plot centers on “betrayed murderess” and an ex-cop with a love booze who seek the head of a crime lord. To get him, they must face a 15-story building in Miami filled with “assassins, murderers, Luchadore gang bosses, ex-boyfriends, and office workers.” Call it a Raid redux with very colorful opponents.

James Coyne will write the adaptation while Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol‘s Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are set to produce.

Starks previous graphic novel, Sexcastle, was optioned by 20th Century Fox in 2016 with Kyle Newacheck set to direct and Blake Anderson tapped to play the titular Shane Sexcastle. Little has happened since the announcement and with the pending Disney/Fox merger, it seems unlikely it will ever be produced. Unless of course Kill Them All works out.
