‘Stealth’ Film Adaptation Taps ‘Empire’s Lee Daniels to Direct

Dec 19, 2019

When it comes to adapting comic books into TV shows, there are few comics writers who’ve had more adaptations than Robert Kirkman. However, his upcoming comic, ‘Stealth,’ will be the first time one of his works is adapted into a feature film.

Per Deadline, Lee Daniels (‘The Butler,’ ‘Empire’) will direct this film adaptation of Kirkman’s comic series for Universal, which tells the story of the titular superhero. “Only reporter Tony Barber knows that behind Stealth’s reckless behavior is an older man battling Alzheimer’s—his father. A father unwilling to accept that he’s no longer the hero this city needs… with enemies all too eager to force his retirement.”

The screenplay will be from writing duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (‘Children of Men,’ ‘The Expanse’).

‘Stealth’ hits comic book shelves March 11, 2020, with no other news available on the Daniels adaptation.
