Scout Comics’s ‘Last Stop’ Adaptation In The Works

by Erik Amaya

Scout Comics’s Last Stop is on its way to becoming a media property

The company announced Wednesday that an adaptation of Trey Walker and Hoyt Silva‘s comic book is in development with veteran producer Sean Robins under his SR-48 production label. The comic tells the story of Lincoln Adams, the world’s last superhero. Although he spend years as the hero called Unstoppable, he is now disillusioned and trying to figure out if there is a place in the world for him anymore. As it happens, he also learns he has a terminal disease, but his new plan to pass quietly is upended when his old archenemy and a “new shadowy masked figure” appear on the scene. It becomes a race against time to stop them before the disease eats Lincoln alive.

That’s a pretty good prompt.

Robins’s previous producing efforts include The Possession of Hannah Grace and next week’s Mortal Kombat. As with all new project announcements, it is unclear how quickly the film will emerge. Writers, a director, and a cast still need to be assembled. At the same time, it is good to see books like Last Stop get optioned as it means producers continue to look further afield in the comics industry for interesting concepts.

Last Stop is not yet scheduled for release.
