Warner Bros. has aquired the graphic novel Hench which they’re gearing up to launch as a vehicle for Danny McBride. The graphic novel, which was created by Adam Beechen and Mario Bello, concerns a football player who suffers a career-ending injury and needs a job. He signs on as henchman to a successful villain.

McBride is set to write the script with Shawn Harwell, one of his writing partners from Eastbound & Down. If you haven’t seen Eastbound, I highly recommend it. It’s one of the funniest things to hit screens in a long time. McBride is currently starring with Will Ferrell in Land Of The Lost and is prepping to begin work on David Gordon Green’s Your Highness.
