Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has purchased the rights to “Hench” and will be developing the graphic novel as the template for a comedy screen vehicle for Danny McBride.

McBride will play a football player who suffers a career-ending injury and needs a job. He signs on as henchman to a successful villain.

For those of you who are wondering where McBride sounds familiar from, look no further than Eastbound and Down on HBO or this summer’s probably hit Land of the Lost.
