The Soska sisters, who directed American Mary, are steering Painkiller Jane back to the screen...

A movie take on the Painkiller Jane comics is heading to the big screen, it's been confirmed. The comic was created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada, and Palmiotti is involved with the movie as producer (along with Stephen L'Heureux).

It tells the story of a cop - that'd be Painkiller Jane - who goes undercover, only for her identity to be compromised. She's tortured, with the consequence of that being a high tolerance for pain, and strange powers.

Bringing her story to the big screen will be the Soska Sisters, who previously put together the movie American Mary. They will be overseeing the third screen take on Painkiller Jane, following a SyFy Channel movie and a series, that starred Kristanna Loken.
