Paramount Have Their LAST MAN STANDING

Paramount have been very busy as well sucessful recently in bidding war’s for quite a few projects and it looks like they’ve added another one to their increasing portfolio Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter .

Before you say anything It’s not the 1996 Bruce Willis prohibition gunslinger for hire movie (which was a remake of the classic Yojimbo movie) but a coffee table sized sci-fi artbook based on the life of Gabriel a genetically altered  bounty hunter(“a soldier with the talent of 500 soldiers.”) who was developed by an arms contractor as part of the Paladin army set in a alternate reality 600 years into the future. When something goes wrong Gabriel is framed and thrown in Prison, but as expected he escapes and heads to New Amerika, an odd land full of ninja’s, daddys girls, sharkmen, burlesque girls (not Christina Aguirela though) and other unsual characters, just sounds like a afternoon stroll Hollywood main street

Heavy Metal are the publishers of this art book with Daniel LuVisi the creator of LMS which is ripe in content and will be made into a Graphic Novel and off course a movie too! Scott Aversano (Last Airbender) will work with LMS creator LuVisi to bring the book to a cinema near you in the near future.

Warner Bros and Summit Entertainment were the defeated bidder’s but I’m sure they’ll live to bid another day! Check out the full synopsis taken from the books Website:

To Whom it May Concern,

My name is Gabriel and I’m going to take you on a little adventure through my life. I must warn you though, it’s not for the faint of heart or stomach, for that matter. There will be laughing, crying, sex, violence, robots, ninjas, burlesque girls, body builder sharks and shit you wouldn’t fathom.

Now, where to begin?

I used to work for a company called ARMTECH or A.W.O. (Armtech Weapons Organization). It’s basically a ‘big brother’ type of company that focuses on keeping our country, that being Amerika, safe. Or under their thumb some might say. They began as a company based on morals and ethics. Citizens of Amerika came first on their list of protection. They solved our problems and fought one hell of a fight if anyone threatened them. They were the side you wanted to be on, and once you vowed your loyalty you weren’t going anywhere. I worked for them because I was made by them. I was created to be the world’s first “superhero” or what ARMTECH calls, a PALADIN, a soldier with the talent of 500 soldiers.

Before you start getting excited, I can’t fly. I don’t have x-ray vision or claws and I wasn’t bitten by any insects. I can’t regenerate and as much as I’d love to be, I’m not a multi-billionaire with a fascination for winged mammals. What I can do is kick ass and take a whole lot of ass kicking. I was created to be a walking army, a bruiser. When our boys in the forces were too afraid to go into the most dangerous of war-zones, they’d call me in to patch things up. There used to be a lot of us, but now I’m the last one surviving. I’m still human, at least I think I am. I do all the things that you do: eat, shit, sleep and fuck.

Things were amazing for me in the beginning. ARMTECH loved me, the people admired me and the criminals, rightfully, despised me. I did what needed to be done; I kept the streets clean and our country safe.

Until one very unfortunate day when everything took an unexpected turn…

Let’s stop right there. I don’t want to spoil everything, so I’ll leave the rest open to your lovely imagination. Hell, some pretentious asshole will eventually write a book explaining everything I did one of these days.

Please, feel free to go and explore some of my flings, my friends and my enemies. Get to know them, they may not all be here one day…

I promise you, it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

Yours truly,
GABRIEL
