Mattson Tomlin Will Adapt His Own A Vicious Circle Comics as a Screenplay


If you don’t yet recognize the name Mattson Tomlin, that is likely to change in the next few years. The co-writer of Matt Reeves’ The Batman sequel, Tomlin is also set to write the next Game of Thrones spinoff, Aegon’s Conquest. He’s also the writer of the movie adaptation of the BRZRKR comics co-created by Keanu Reeves; and—and—he’s the showrunner for Netflix’s animated Terminator Zero.

Oh, and now he’s going to adapt his own comics. The Hollywood Reporter has the news that Tomlin will write the screenplay for the adaptation of A Vicious Circle, the comic he created with artist Lee Bermejo. What’s more, Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) is producing the film.

According to THR, A Vicious Circle has been a hit for its publisher, Boom! Studios, “with over 100,000 copies of the first two issues sold worldwide to date and the book translated in multiple languages.”

A Vicious Circle is assassins and time travel. Here’s the comic summary:

Shawn Thacker is a trained assassin from the future who seeks revenge on the only other man with his affliction—each life they take forces them both to involuntarily travel between vastly different past and future eras. Spanning from 22nd century Tokyo to 1950s New Orleans to the Cretaceous Era and beyond, the two mortal rivals are locked in a battle of wills that spans millions of years, all to alter the course of history.

Two issues of the comic exist; the third is in stores August 7th. No casting or production timeline has been announced for the film. icon-paragraph-end
