Blake Masters will pen the screenplay for 2 GUNS, a graphic novel adaptation at Universal, per THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.
Masters is the creator of Showtime series BROTHERHOOD. Marc Platt will produce the crime thriller under his production banner with publisher Boom! Studios' co-founders Andrew Cosby and Ross Ritchie.
The film will have an '80s buddy cop movie feel, with an update. 2 GUNS was written by Steven Grant with illustrations by Mat Santolouco and is about a DEA agent and an undercover Naval intelligence officer who are unknowingly investigating each other stealing mob money. But the mob has double crossed them, actually getting them to steal $50 million from the CIA.
