Variety reports that Matthew Fox may star in the adaptation of B. Clay Moore's forthcoming graphic novel 'Billy Smoke'.
The book, illustrated by Eric Kim and set for publication in 2009 by Oni Press, centers on a redemption-seeking hit man who's near-fatal epiphany leads him to target other assassins.
Fox is a fan favorite as the star of the hit TV show 'Lost' and recently appeared as Racer X in 'Speed Racer'.
Project will be produced by Basil Iwanyk at Thunder Road and Eric Gitter at Closed on Mondays Entertainment. Oni's Peter Sherwin will exec produce.
