Five years after Hobo With A Shotgun blew us away, Dartmouth’s Jason Eisener is gearing up to deliver the New York City Outlaws to the big screen.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Eisener will be directing the feature-length adaptation of the little-known ’80s comic book by Robert Hussar and Ken Landgraf.
The five-issue series follows a gang of vigilantes who rise up to restore NYC from the chaos of a city-wide police strike.
It sounds kind of like The Warriors meets The Purge, which is exactly the orgy of retro rampage we’d love to see Eisener sink his teeth into.
Eisener is currently working as second unit director on the hotly-anticipated Netflix adaptation of cult manga series Death Note.
