Diablo Cody Writing Comic Book Adaptation ‘Lady Killer’ With Blake Lively Attached to Star

Netflix is turning the Dark Horse Comics series Lady Killer into a feature film, and Deadline reports tonight that Diablo Cody (Jennifer’s Body) will be writing the adaptation!

Additionally, Blake Lively (The Shallows) is on board to star in the movie.

“The plan is for Lively to play Josie Schuller. By all appearances, she is the perfect 1950’s housewife. But when she’s not catering to the needs of her family, she leads a secret life as a highly-trained killer for hire. She really likes the second job, and her husband has no idea.”

Joëlle Jones and Jamie S. Rich wrote the comic, which Dark Horse debuted in 2015.

Lively is also attached to produce the film adaptation for Netflix.
