From SyFy and director Brian Taylor (Crank) comes the TV adaptation of Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s Happy! Morrison will serve as co-executive producer alongside Taylor, adapting his own comic to the smallscreen. Starring Christopher Meloni, Patton Oswalt and Lili Mirojnick the mini-series will debut December 6th!
Meet NICK SAX – a corrupt, intoxicated ex-cop turned hit-man, adrift in a stinking twilight world of casual murder, soulless sex, eczema and betrayal. With a hit gone wrong, a bullet in his side, the cops and the mob on his tail, and a monstrous child killer in a Santa suit on the loose, Nick and his world will be changed forever this Christmas. By a tiny blue horse called Happy…
I loved the Happy! mini-series from Image Comics. Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s twisted tale about a piece of shit ex-cop who tries to redeem himself after teaming up with a little girl’s imaginary friend to try and save her, is so dark, so disturbing and so damn good I’m stunned that the TV adaptation looks so incredibly faithful. I mean – look at this thing – it’s pitch perfect. Christopher Meloni and Patton Oswalt? Already a candidate for best on-screen duo of the year and I’ve just seen the batshit bonkers trailer. Crank co-director Brian Taylor is BACK my friend and this looks like he managed to adapt the source material while putting his own acid-trip spin on the sucker with glowing results. I cannot wait to see this show.
