Ed Brubaker has proved himself one of the best comic book authors working today.  Now he’s getting into the screenwriting game as Variety reports that he’ll adapt his stellar graphic novel Coward for Hunting Lane Films with David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) attached to direct.  Coward is the first in the series of Brubaker’s Criminal series, which is a collection of interconnection noir stories.  The protagonist of Coward is Leo, “a master thief and heist planner lives in a world of hustlers, crooked cops, pickpockets and lowlifes.”  The title refers to Leo’s perceived status as a coward because of his behavior on a botched heist.
