Grant Morrison's Joe the Barbarian miniseries will be adapted to film.

The writer revealed to Robot 6 that his eight-issue Vertigo title - illustrated by Sean Murphy - is in development with Clash of the Titans producers Thunder Road Pictures.

"Thunder Road just called me today and said we can officially announce it, so I'm quite happy about that," said Morrison.

Joe the Barbarian follows the adventures of a diabetic boy who travels to a fantastic world when he neglects to take his medication.

Morrison is not writing the screenplay for the movie.
