The Image graphic novel Torso, by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Andreyko, is headed for the big screen.  It will be directed by David (Seven, Fight Club) Fincher, and written by Ehren (The Ring, The Ring 2, John Carter of Mars) Kruger (see 'Scribe Hired for 'A Princess of Mars''). 


The property was originally optioned by Todd McFarlane, who is one of four producers attached to the movie.  Another is Bill Mechanic, who's also producing the film based on Neil Gaiman's Coraline (see 'Coraline Movie Set'). 
The story follows federal agent Elliot Ness to Cleveland, after his experience in Chicago, to hunt down a serial killer who's been leaving torsos in the river.
