The Strange Talent of Luther Strode Heads to the Big Screen

The Strange Talent of Luther Strode

Allnighter has announced that it is adapting the Image Comics series The Strange Talent of Luther Strode by Justin Jordan and Tradd MooreAllnighter’s Dinesh ShamdasaniHunter Gorinson, and Amanda Kruse will produce the film alongside co-creators Jordan and Moore. Jordan is currently at work adapting the comic and will pen the screenplay.

The subject of near-universal critical acclaim and multiple sold-out printings, The Strange Talent of Luther Strode cemented writer Justin Jordan and artist Tradd Moore alike as two of comics’ fastest rising stars upon its debut in 2011 and led both to best-selling turns at the helm of Marvel and DC’s biggest franchises. In the process, Jordan and Moore reunited for two equally successful follow-ups – 2012’s The Legend of Luther Strode and 2015’s The Legacy of Luther Strode – to complete the genre-colliding trilogy that first rocketed them to superstar status.

The series splices together the common DNA of the superhero and slasher archetypes for a brash and bloody adventure that is equal parts comic-book escapism and action-horror hybrid.

High schooler Luther Strode was always a little bit less than average – soft-spoken, skinny, and, more than anything, terrified that his estranged father would one day return to torment him and his mother once more. But that ended the day that Luther discovered “The Method” – an improbably old text hidden between the comic books and ragged paperbacks at his favorite used bookstore. But The Method is far more than it seems – and, as its ancient techniques rework Luther’s body and unlock the strange talents buried deep within, he will find himself transformed into a near-perfect physical specimen imbued with incredible strength, startling new abilities…and a killer’s instinct for violence that he can’t quite seem to shake. When The Method’s masters arrive to observe Luther’s progress and draw him into action, he’ll be forced to make the ultimate choice: embrace the monster he was intended to be…or use his newfound power to protect the people – the classmates, the teachers, the neighbors – who never protected him when he needed them the most.

Jordan’s other film and television projects currently include an adaptation of his comics series Spread with artist Kyle Strahm, while Moore’s 2019 series with writer Ales KotThe New World, is being adapted as a feature film for Warner Bros. Pictures.
