Dustin Lance Black, the screenwriter who won an Oscar for penning Milk, is tied to write and direct the upcoming graphic novel adaptation 3 Story, THR is reporting. Warner Brothers recently acquired the rights from Dark Horse Comics and have announced Black’s involvement.
The graphic novel was written by Matt Kindt and it is a story about a man who doesn’t stop growing, until he is 3 stories tall. It is told through the eyes of the three women in his life: mother, wife and daughter.
Black, who just penned the script to Clint Eastwood‘s Hoover, looks to numb the story a little bit. Apparently, the story is extremely melancholy, and WB would like him to make it a little more accessible and a little less abstract. If Milk is any indication of his ability to make a powerful, emotional statement, I would be inclined to let him do whatever he wants with it. But we will see how it is done.
What is your take on 3 Story? Is this the right man for the job?
