Alex Tse, who recently adapted Watchmen, has another graphic novel–to–screen adaptation in the works: Battling Boy. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tse will be writing the screenplay for the Paul Pope novel that “follows the son of a god who comes down from the top of a mountain at his father’s urging to rid the giant, continent-sized city of Monstropolis of a plague of beasts.”
