I was reading today that Warner Bros. bought the film rights to a French graphic novel called "Du Plomb Dans la Tête." The premise of the story was surprising. From the Slash Film blog:
The series tells the story of two killers, two cops, and a journalist. In a Bronx apartment, Jimmy and Louis, two hired killers, slaughter a senator and the prostitute. Perry and Carlisle, two New York City cops, investigate and find evidence that points to the killers. Things go wrong and both their partners are killed. The Hitman and Cop decide to form an alliance, and on their road to revenge they realize that the enemy isn’t the only thing they have in common.

Sounds good, but not very French.

Is this the legacy of gun control? The French now have to set their crime stories in the United States?
