Ryan Coogler, the visionary director behind “Black Panther,” is further solidifying his production company Proximity Media’s reputation as a hub for innovative storytelling with the acquisition of “A Vicious Circle.”

This graphic novel adaptation, born from the creative minds of Mattson Tomlin and Lee Bermejo, promises to be a thrilling blend of “Looper” and “John Wick.”

The narrative follows two skilled assassins, bound together by a shared affliction that propels them through time, engaging in a high-stakes battle that spans millions of years.

From the neon-lit streets of 22nd century Tokyo to the jazz clubs of 1950s New Orleans and the ancient landscapes of the Cretaceous Era, this epic tale defies temporal boundaries.

With over 100,000 copies sold worldwide and two Eisner Award nominations under its belt, the graphic novel has already demonstrated its resonance with audiences.

Coogler, alongside his Proximity partners Sev Ohanian and Zinzi Coogler, will bring this touching story to life, joined by Boom! Studios’ president Stephen Christy and Tomlin, who is also penning the script.

Tomlin’s impressive credentials include contributions to “The Batman,” “Project Power,” and “Mother/Android.” Proximity Media’s diverse slate includes the highly anticipated Marvel series “Ironheart,” the documentary “Homeroom,” and music documentary “Anthem.”

By adding “A Vicious Circle” to their roster, Coogler and his team are cementing their commitment to pushing creative boundaries and crafting unforgettable cinematic experiences.
