According to Deadline, a comic created by Shad Gaspard and Muhammad Hassan is set to be turned into a feature film. The duo worked together to create “Assassin and Son,” which had a worldwide release during the pandemic.
Illustrated by Eder Messiah, “Assassin and Son” focuses on Donovan Braddock, a one-man killing unit who works with a team of covert assassins known as “The Horsemen.”
Scout Comics & Entertainment, which published the comic, will produce the feature adaptation alongside State Street. State Street Creative Executive Lawrence Mott had this to say about the opportunity.
“We’re thrilled at the opportunity to bring Shad and Marc’s comic to life. What excites us creatively is the balance of hard-hitting action and emotional themes presented in the source material.”
Gaspard tragically passed away in May 2020 after having successfully saved his son from drowning. He received the Warrior Award posthumously as part of WWE’s Hall of Fame Class of 2022.
Muhammad Hassan, real name Marc Copani, parted ways with WWE after a brief stint in 2005. He currently serves as the principal of Fulton Junior High School in Fulton in New York.
