Nor is "Interman" the only CIA-laced adventure generating buzz. "The Losers," from DC Comics' Vertigo imprint, is a high-energy action property about a tough-as-nails U.S. Special Forces unit. Betrayed by their CIA handler and left for dead, the motley crew plots revenge by targeting the agency's dirty operations.

From a backstage.com article on comics properties that Hollywood has its eye on for "development". I'm happy for Jeff Parker, to see his excellent Interman getting some attention...but I'm not so sure I want to see it, or The Losers, or some of the other titles mentioned in the article get run through the Hollywood meat grinder, or get "Catwomaned", if you will.

Still, you gotta believe that Losers would be tailor-made for an HBO or Showtime series. You'd think so, anyway. Found via Franklin's Findings.
