One popular idea when dealing with time travel is going back and killing Hitler. It seems like a given, and it has been done before. And now Studio Eight hopes to turn that very idea into a movie.
It’s being reported that the company has optioned the film rights to I Killed Adolf Hitler, the Norwegian graphic novel by Jason (John Arne Sæterøy) that took home an Eisner Award in 2007, and that they’ve brought in D.C. Walker to adapt it into a screenplay for them.
In the graphic novel, a hitman heads back in time to 1938 to murder Hitler before he can unleash the horror he is and always will be known for unleashing upon this planet, but finds himself facing complications in getting the job done.
