Last Man Standing (LMS) bought by Paramount as a film, video game, and more

Looking at the picture, you might think Sony is developing a sequel to PlanetSide. No sir. It's a new entertainment franchise. Paramount has bought the rights to LMS: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, an upcoming 230 page graphic novel by DC comics artist Dan LuVisi. Paramount is looking to develop a movie and video game (at least) based on the franchise though few details are known.

Confused? Here's some info about the graphic novel from LuVisi, courtesy of Geek Chic Daily.

Last Man Standing, or LMS, takes place 600 years in the future, in an alternate universe and is about Gabriel, this invincible soldier, who's been created to help win a war Earth got itself too deep into with Mars. After Gabe wins the war, he comes back down to Earth and is celebrated as this incredible hero. From there, he becomes somewhat of a celebrity, a Superman of this story, but then it all takes a quick turn. Gabriel is framed for an atrocious crime, by a terrorist organization known as Pandemonium and their leader, Dante. He is then sent to Level-9 Facility, where he'll spend the next nine years in the worst prison of all time. Once Gabriel breaks out, only then does his true story begin, and the lies and twists unravel.

“As for the entire series, it's a story of mine I've been crafting over the past two and a half years. I want it to be a graphic novel series, but start it in a non-traditional type way. Where most comics start off with a first issue, this starts off with a 230-page bible of a book, Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, that sets up the entire universe of the LMS world. But not only that, the audience gets an incredibly deep perspective on the protagonist, Gabriel, and what his plans are now that he's escaped from Level-9.” - Dan LuVisi

Sounds interesting enough, though it also sounds like the plot of every Halo-like game out there. Thanks to Deadline for the story. Check out Dan LuVisa's website and the LMS site for more information.
