According to The Hollywood Reporter, Summit Entertainment is picking up its first comic book adaptation: Warren Ellis' Red. Erich and John Hoeber, the brothers behind Warner Bros' movie adaptation of Whiteout, will be penning the screenplay. Not only does this make the second Ellis movie in a week (Ocean is being developed by Warner Bros, read our story here), but this is the first DC title to jump the Time Warner ship.

Ellis' three issue book centers on a black-ops CIA Agent, Paul Moses, who's now living the quiet life of retirement. For years, the CIA has left him alone, but when the agency gets a new head, it is decided that Moses has to go. Action sequences and bloody carnage follow.
