It appears that Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' "Incognito" isn't hidden below the Hollywood radar anymore.

The critically-acclaimed, Eisner-nominated miniseries published under Marvel's Icon imprint has been optioned for a feature film by 20th Century Fox, reports the Deadline Hollywood blog. Headed up by producers Peter Chernin and David Engel, the journey to an "Incognito" movie will begin with a script by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan.

Brubaker explained to the site the hook that attracted Fox to the lead character, Zack Overkill. “We’ve all seen the story of a good person who goes undercover and gets corrupted. This is a bad person forced to live among regular people, and how he’s affected by that. He once ran around with a mask, but now he’s got the fake name and the fake job. My goal was to have you rooting for him as he grows a conscience.”
