Warner Bros. has announced it is adapting the Dark Horse series, Rex Mundi into a feature movie.  The writing team of Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal have been hired to pen the adaptation which is being produced by Johnny Depp.

The comic was set in an alternate Europe in which the Protestant Reformation was crushed by the Catholic Church, resulting in the continuing of a medieval power structure where magic is also real. The story is set in 1933 and centers on a pathologist who investigates the mysterious death of the priest who found him as an orphan, a trail that ultimately leads to a quest for the Holy Grail.

While no actors have been hired, if you are curious about how the strong the story will be, the writing team were involved in writing TRON: Legacy.
