Hot off of a run on the newest Star Wars trilogy, actor Oscar Isaac has signed on to an adaptation of the most effective comedian sequence of the early 21st century, Ex Machina–now known as The Great Machine for the massive display screen.
Isaac has signed on to play the lead character Mitchell Hundred. In addition to starring, Isaac may even produce The Great Machine alongside Jason Spire and Vaughan.
In the Ex Machina comic–written by Brian Ok. Vaughan and drawn by Tony Harris–Hundred is the primary and solely superhero who turns into mayor of New York City after the occasions of 9/11. The guide primarily revolves round politics, with the flashbacks to Hundred’s time as a superhero, The Great Machine–a superhuman who can speak to and management machines. The sequence ran for 50 points at Wildstorm Comics, a DC Comics imprint.

We’ve seen, five [or] six scripts now. That’s that’s all I can say. We haven’t scheduled because it hasn’t gone into production yet. We changed showrunners and did a big sort of reboot on it and so that was a big redevelopment. But that seems to be going well.”
