The Soska Sisters To Take On Painkiller Jane

Painkiller_jane01The Hollywood Reporter is saying that the Soska Sisters, the twin directors behind the horror movie American Mary have signed on to head the adaptation of Painkiller Jane.

Based off the comic created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada, Painkiller Jane focuses on an undercover cop who's cover gets blown and she is tortured, leaving her with a preternatural healing ability and a high tolerance for pain.

The SyFy channel brought it to the small screen twice, first in a made-for-TV movie in 2005 with Emmanuelle Vaugier. Then in 2007 made it a series with Kristanna Loken in the title role.

Palmiotti, via his Paperfilms company, and Solipsist Films'Stephen L'Heureux are producing. L'Heureux is a producer on Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.

The Soska Sisters, (Jen And Sylvia) just recently filmed Vendetta and their movie See No Evil 2 will be released later this year.
