Carlton Cuse has found his next producing gig, according to Deadline. He is reportedly producing an adaptation of Oni Press' graphic novel Sixth Gun for NBC. The drama about "six mythical guns in the Old West" is set to be produced by Universal TV. Ryan Condal has signed on to pen the script and will executive produce with Cuse. Also producing is Eric Gitter and Andy Bourne of Oni Press’s sister company, Closed on Mondays Entertainment.
The story is described as follows:
When the Sixth Gun, the most powerful and dangerous of the group, resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl named Becky Montcrief, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing Becky. Only Drake Sinclair, a self-serving gunfighter, stands in evil’s way.
This sounds like a great TV show for NBC, which has been having bad luck lately launching quality shows. Do you think Cuse is the person to help launch this property?
