It is based on a graphic novel of the same name by James Callahan and Rick Spears.

Law currently features in the second season of his HBO show The New Pope. His last film release was Blake Lively-starrer The Rhythm Section.

Waititi is coming off an Oscar win for best adapted screenplay for Jojo Rabbit. His next directorial is Searchlight Pictures’ dramedy Next Goal Wins, featuring Michael Fassbender.

The filmmaker will also soon start working on Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder.
