Taika Waititi is adapting Alejandro Jodorowsky’s best-selling graphic novel The Incalas 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.
