Deadline is reporting that the Paranormal Hitmen comic book is being developed into a TV series by the eOne studio. The comic book from writer Brett Murphy and illustrator Wilson Gandolpho, which is described as "Ghostbusters meets Pulp Fiction," is an irreverent action-comedy that follows Gene Rizzo and Devon Grace, two mob hitmen whose lives are turned upside down when they’re accidentally recruited into a secret government agency tasked with hunting down paranormal threats. These low-down criminals then face threats from the living AND the dead—determined to control the world of the paranormal, while confronting ghosts of their pasts. eOne will produce the series under the late Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner’s Altar Rock label, with Goldner and Josh Feldman exec producing alongside Murphy and Gandolpho.
