Posted by at 2:34 am on March 6, 2012

Dwayne Johnson is set to headline the Russo Brothers’ film adaptation of their own upcoming graphic novel, Ciudad.

First announced some years ago, the still-unpublished graphic novel (written with Ande Parks) is set in one of the most dangerous and corrupt cities in the world. Johnson plays a black market mercenary who’s hired by a Brazilian drug lord to rescue his kidnapped daughter.

The film is being produced by Eric Gitter and Peter Schwerin of Closed on Mondays Entertainment (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), as well as Randal Emmett & George Furla (Broken City). Emmett/Furla Films will finance the movie. Envision Entertainment’s Stepan Martirosyan and Remington Chase, who maintain a film fund with Emmett/Furla Films, will executive produce. Joe Russo adapted the screenplay and will co-direct.
