There has long been talk of producing a big-screen adaptation of Torso, Brian Michael Bendis and Marc Andreyko's graphic novel based on the serial murder case that plagued Eliot Ness's post-Untouchables career. Originally a limited series from Image Comics in the late '90s, the book is called Torso because that's all America's first serial killer left of his victims. (Although the first thing I thought of was that Simpsons episode where Todd Flanders proudly exclaims, "I'm a torso!" Is that wrong? Probably, yes.) Image co-founder Todd McFarlane talked to IGN about producing a film almost three years ago, and director David Fincher was attached shortly thereafter. Then last month, Matt Damon was pretty much confirmed for the lead, so it seemed like the project was picking up steam.
