Traveling back in time to kill Adolf Hitler is always a great start to a movie/book/weekend. If you’ve never had a chance to read the 2007 Eisner Award winning graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler by Norway’s John Arne Sæterøy (AKA JASON) you might have a chance to just wait for the movie. The Hollywood Report is reporting that  that Studio Eight has optioned the film rights and tapped screenwriter D.C. Walker of Up Country Productions to adapt.

The book is about the “adventures of a hitman who encounters complications after traveling back in time to 1938 to assassinate Hitler” and with Jason’s work often being compared to Herge‘s Adventures of Tin Tin that recently hit the screen it’s clear to see why it got picked up and speculation that it would be made with performance capture, as Herge’s Tintin was last year has already started.
