#film / Taika Waititi to direct The Incal.

This is fantastic news in so many ways. Aside from Luc Besson, I can’t think of a better creative person to bring Jodorowshy’s epic science fiction story to cinema. And, apparently, it’s just the beginning!

The Incal is also just the first work in a series of connected comics that Jodorowsky wrote (referred to as the Jodoverse), which could see the upcoming film be the start of the kind of long-running franchise that Hollywood has been chasing since the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With that in mind, Waititi is the best candidate to pull this off. What a great opportunity for people who make films.
