The “comic books into movies” trend marches ever onward, but if a comic adaptation has no superheroes, magic hammers, or grown men dressing up like winged mammals, does it still count as part of the trend? The world may never know. But what we do know is that “Who is Jake Ellis?” the graphic novel from Nathan Edmonson and Tonci Zonjic, is the latest comic to see a big screen adaptation. We also know (thanks to The Hollywood Reporter) that Who is Jake Ellis? will be directed by English filmmaker David Yates. Yates is best known for the last four Harry Potter films, but his work on the TV miniseries State of Play (which eventually got remade into the Russell Crowe film of the same name) makes him seem much more fitting for the twisty-turny spy thriller that is Who is Jake Ellis?
