Taika Waititi Adapting Alejandro Jodorowsky And Moebius' Graphic Novel The Incal

Way back when, artist and filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky decided he was going to adapt Frank Herbert's Dune. Obviously, that didn't come to fruition (as anyone who has seen documentary Jodorowsky's Dune knows in fascinating detail), but his collaboration with iconic creative talent Jean Giraud, aka Moebius on designs for the movie didn't go to waste – their creative partnership gave life to a graphic novel called The Incal, which itself grew into a whole series of titles. Now, in an exciting development, Jodorowsky has anointed Taika Waititi as the man with the right attitude to bring it to screens.
