The Pro, the graphic novel created by Garth Ennis, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner about a single-mother sex worker who wakes up one morning with superpowers and catches to attention of the Justice League-esque League of Honor, has been picked up by Paramount Pictures for a potential movie, being produced by Erwin Stoff and written by Zoe McCarthy.

The Pro played with many of the absurd trappings of superhero fiction, not to mention sexual attitudes. Clearly a contender for another R-rated superhero film.

The Pro is in it's eighth printing from Image Comics, if that's any hint at how good it is. Worth checking out to say the least.
