Did you ever catch director Ben Wheatley's 2015 thriller, High Rise or notably the latest trailer for rousing crime flick, Free Fire? If not, take a gander at either and you might understand why it appears both Wheatley and High Rise star Tom Hiddleston are the current frontrunners for a new property at Warner Bros.

As Deadline reported on Monday, the studio is in talks to acquire, the Dark Horse Comics publication, Hard Boiled, with the hopes of launching a co-production with Solipsist Films and Hollywood Gang. Created by Frank Miller and Geoff Darrow in 1990, the graphic novel miniseries focused on Carl Seltz, an insurance investigator who discovers he is a homicidal cyborg tax collector and ultimately robotkind's last hope against programmed oppresion.

Stephen L’Heureux, Bernie Goldmann and Gianni Nunnari are the named producers on the project should things follow suit. Details remain pending as nothing is finalized according to the report though the word is that things are looking up prosperously enough that fans of Hiddleston's rantings and ravings as beloved Marvel villain, Loki, in recent memory.
