Universal Pictures is in early development on a movie based on the Dark Horse sci-fi comic Fear Agent, The Hollywood Reporter's Risky Biz blog reported.

Here's what the blog said:

Agent centers on a colorful, borderline alcoholic astronaut named Heath Huston, a Texan who works as a so-called fear agent, the last of a dwindling breed of spacemen whose mission it is to fight threats to the planet Earth, which is partly destroyed during the course of the series.

The property emphasizes a kind of in-your-face adventure as Huston hops around the galaxy fighting various alien species and threats.

The series was written by Rick Remender and started in 2005.
