Doctors Graphic Novel Picked Up By Fox, David Goyer Producing

The Hollywood Reporter reports that 20th Century Fox has acquired the film right to Dash Shaw’s independent graphic novel Doctors.

The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice writer David S. Goyer will produce the film for his own company, Phantom Four.

Doctors is about a group of doctors with technology that allows them to enter the minds of the dead in the form of a memory, bringing the dead back to life temporarily. The process hits a snag when the doctors are hired to bring back a woman’s mother, but the mother doesn’t want to return.

Doctors was just released in September, a follow-up to Shaw’s previous independent graphic novels Bottomless Belly Button and New School.
