David Hayter to Script ‘The Sword’ by the Luna Brothers

X-Men and Watchmen screenwriter David Hayter will write the script for a film adaptation of The Sword, a graphic novel series by Jonathan Luna and Joshua Luna (a pair of comic book creators dubbed “the Luna Brothers”).

Lakeshore Entertainment (Underworld and The Lincoln Lawyer) and Hopscotch Features teamed up for the project. UTA and attorney David Feldman represented Hayter and CAA represents the Luna Brothers. Here’s more about the comic book series:

The Sword tells the story of a young paraplegic, Dara Brighton, who leads an ordinary existence until her family is brutally murdered by a mysterious trio, possessed of god-like, supernatural abilities.  Left for dead, Dara discovers an ancient sword belonging to her father, indicating that his past may have been much longer, and stranger, than she could have ever suspected.  The sword not only restores her ability to walk, but it grants her a constantly evolving array of spectacular physical powers.  With her new weapon in hand, and two faithful friends at her side, Dara Brighton embarks on a journey to hunt down and destroy her family’s assassins.
