Fear Agent is blasting our way

Universal is in the early stages of developing Dark Horse's sci-fi comic Fear Agent. According to Risky Biz Blog, the project is an open-writing assignment at the moment, but the studio could match a spec script whose rights are controlled by Air Force One producer Jonathan Shestack and bring Shestack on to produce Fear Agent.

Fear Agent centers on a colourful, borderline alcoholic astronaut named Heath Huston, a Texan who works as a so-called fear agent, the last of a dwindling breed of spacemen whose mission it is to fight threats to the planet Earth, which is partly destroyed during the course of the series.

The property emphasizes a kind of in-your-face adventure as Huston hops around the galaxy fighting various alien species and threats.

Rick Remender penned the series, which began life in 2005 as an Image Comics property before moving to Dark Horse the following year.

It is a great comic and will work really well on the big screen. Very excited about this. Are you a fan of comic? Who could play Heath Huston?
