Nicolas Winding Refn and DreamWorks are in talks of acquiring the movie rights to Button Man: The Killing Game, a graphic novel.
Button Man: The Killing Game is about Harry Exton, who is a hired gunman offered to take part in a game organized by bored millionaires. The game revolves around trained killers set against each other in a fight for the death. The winner of the game would win a fortune.
The story sort of sounds like a Rat Race type of deal. It could go several ways and be more of a comedy/action mix, or a straight up shoot-em-up action packed movie. Either way, it sounds like a winner to me. I don’t really read graphic novels, but I’d love to see the movie adaptation for this one.
What do you think a Button Man movie based on the graphic novel The Killing Game? Do you think it sounds too much like Rat Race or do you think it’s unique enough to stand on its own?
