Universal Pictures has teamed with Skybound Entertainment for a big screen adaptation of Stealth, a one-shot comic created by Robert Kirkman and Marc Silvestri in 2010.
The movie will be written by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who also wrote Iron Man and Cowboys & Aliens, and Lee Daniels will direct and produce, alongside Pam Williams. Daniels’ other film credits include The Butler, The Paperboy, and Precious.
For decades, Stealth has waged war on crime in Detroit, but now he’s taken his pursuit of justice too far. Only reporter Tony Barber knows that behind Stealth’s reckless behavior is an older man battling Alzheimer’s—his father. A father unwilling to accept that he’s no longer the hero this city needs… with enemies all too eager to force his retirement.
A new Stealth comic series is being launched by Skybound via Image Comics March 11, 2020. It’ll be written by Mike Costa, with art by Nate Bellegarde and Tamra Bonvillain, and a cover by Jason Howard.
