Don't Breathe director Fede Alvarez tapped to direct Incognito adaptation

10.13.2016

When Fede Alvarez's latest feature, DON'T BREATHE, hit theaters, the news that he passed up on a Marvel venture started making the rounds. While it would have been cool to see Alvarez helm a comic book film of that size, it looks like we may not have to wait long for a different comic book adaptation. The Hollywood Reporter is starting that Alvarez is already attached to adapt the comic mini-series "Incognito."

The story follows an-ex super villain who turned in a fellow crime lord and is now doomed to a mundane existence in Witness Protection, taking pills to suppress his super powers. As you can imagine, the lifestyle doesn't suit a person of that type, and the plot only gets more interesting from there. The story is being written by Daniel Casey, who's a bit of an up-and-comer. As of now, Alvarez is set to direct, although I imagine we won't hear some more concrete news until the new year.

Alvarez has more than proved himself in the horror genre with EVIL DEAD and DON'T BREATHE. I think the man really knows how to "Sam Raimi" a situation, providing some great fun and scares. How that may translate to the comic book medium is anyone's guess, but the premise for "Incognito" is already a fascinating one. While I'm not familiar with the source material, penned by Ed Brubaker, I have high hopes for whatever Alvarez attaches to his name to.
