Scout Comics and State Street Pictures Developing Film Based On Assassin & Son

State Street Pictures has optioned the comic book Assassin & Son, created and written by Shad Gaspard and Marc Copani with art by Eder Messiah. Scout Comics & Entertainment, who published the comic, is attached to produce along with State Street.

Donovan Braddock is a one-man killing unit who works with a team of covert assassins known as “The Horsemen.” When Braddock finds love, and makes a family of his own, he attempts to leave that life of violence behind. But he discovers that his old life still torments him when his wife is murdered in front of him and his young son. Now, with nothing to live for, this tragic event sends father and son on an epic journey of revenge and consequence.

Gaspard and Copani are former professional WWE wrestlers who teamed up to write Assassin & Son after retiring from wrestling. Tragically, Shad Gaspard passed away in May 2020 while swimming in Venice Beach with his young son when the two were caught in a riptide, shortly before the publication of Assassin & Son #1. Gaspard was recently inducted into the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame posthumously.
