A television series adaptation is being developed at eOne based on the Paranormal Hitmen comic books from writer Brett Murphy and illustrator Wilson Gandolpho, Deadline reports.
Paranormal Hitmen is billed as a Ghostbusters meets Pulp Fiction (meets The Sopranos?) action-comedy, and follows two mob hitmen whose lives are turned upside down when they're accidentally recruited into a secret government agency tasked with hunting down paranormal threats. They'll have to juggle hunting ghosts and staying clear of their old mob boss, Alfonso Carboni, who isn't too happy that his men left to work elsewhere.
The first volume of Paranormal Hitmen was only released by Behemoth Comics in March 2022, so it's clear eOne wasted no time to acquire adaptation rights on the series.
Producers include Murphy and Gandolpho, as well as Brian Goldner and Josh Feldman. No writing team has yet been assembled, but that's to be expected given the project is still in the earliest development stages.
Paranormal Hitmen is one of several projects that eOne currently has in the works. Among them, the studio is also developing a new Dungeons & Dragons TV series by Red Notice filmmaker Rawson Marshall Thurber, a Play-Doh feature film from writer Emily V. Gordon and produced by Jon M. Chu, a high-concept thriller titled Tarot from Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark filmmaker André Øvredal, as well as a TV adaptation of the YA novel They Both Die at the End, co-written and exec produced by Bridgerton‘s Chris Van Dusen.
