Jimmy Palmiotti let it be known that the attempts at making The Pro by Garth Ennis with art by Palmiotti and Amanda Connor went nowhere as an animated movie, which has prompted the creators to gear the prostitute with superpowers toward a live action series.

we have been thinking of going the live action route with the project and my first and favorite candidate is Sarah Silverman. First off, she is funny as hell and I think has the right attitude. Second, she can act…which is important for this to work and last, she has more balls than most people I know and would be willing and able to pull this off just right, in my opinion.I also think the big screen needs to see more of her.

One should keep in mind that this is just Palmiotti talking, as there has been no official production announcement made.  If Silverman were really interested in the role, I’m sure her H’wood connections would have the production pushed through to green light and pro-pro status before you could blink.  While Silverman might work, and seeing her with blond hair might be a different experience, I wonder what the audience reaction would be?
