Jimmy Palmiotti wants the Comedian to play the superpowered Prostitute in a movie version of his, Amanda Conner and Garth Ennis’ graphic novel.
On Jimmy Palmiotti’s blog , the writer and inker has been talking about the movie version of The Pro, a graphic novel he did with Garth Ennis and his wife Amanda Conner about a prostitute with superpowers, and he wants comedian Sarah Silverman to play the role.
As you guys know, we have been going the animation route with adapting
the comic book that Garth Ennis, Amanda Conner and myself created, The
Pro. Well, we have given up on that since we did a killer demo that
went nowhere…and no, we cannot show you it because we don’t own it
and would get sued…and I am sick of lawyers as is.
been thinking of going the live action route with the project and my
first and favorite candidate is Sarah Silverman. First off, she is
funny as hell and I think has the right attitude. Second, she can
act…which is important for this to work and last, she has more balls
than most people I know and would be willing and able to pull this off
just right, in my opinion.I also think the big screen needs to see more
of her. let me know what you think.
What do you guys think? Would this work? I dunno myself, I like Silverman, she’s very funny, but I don’t see a movie being made out of The Pro, it just seems too gratuitous, but then, Kick-Ass is coming out, who knows?
