Get ready to travel into the great beyond. 

Taika Waititi is adapting Alejandro Jodorowsky’s best-selling graphic novel The Incal as a feature film.

For those who have never heard of it, this is the top-selling science fiction graphic novel in history. In addition to directing, Waititi is writing the screenplay with Jemaine Clement and Peter Warren.

This epic space opera was created by filmmaker/writer Jodorowsky and French artist Moebius in the 1970s. It's about a character named John Difool who is a private investigator and bodyguard who stumbles upon a powerful artifact known as the Incal. He uses it to save the universe while on a spiritual journey that leads him to examine the meaning of existence. 

I think that sounds very much up Waititi's alley. We're excited.

Jodowerse is more creative than Star Wars. Not many can recreate visually in film what visually in graphic novels Moebius done. This is more serious than MCU.

I'm so jealous of Waititi right now. "The Incal" would be one of my top 5 titles to turn into a film. It will be really challenging to do well. I wish him good luck. What an amazing opportunity.
