We could say that HR perhaps has gotten the plot wrong. But I’m guessing instead that it’s indeed all the idea of the aforementioned Hoebers, Erich and Jon, who are scribing this thing. We could say, having read the comic, that we could have sworn it was about the aforementioned agent, true, but with no love interest and no “old team.” It was a beautiful story of one unstoppable killing machine that somebody stupidly turns back on.
Anyway, I’m thinking they really wanted to make The Losers but got Red instead, and decided to Lawnmower Man the two ideas. Next up, Scars will turned into a heart-warming buddy cop procedural comedy starring Seth Rogen and Steve Carell. In the end, though, as long as Uncle Warren and Hamner get checks out of the deal, then rock on.
