The New West movie adaptation is moving ahead having recruited a screenwriter.

Ryan Engle has signed up to adapt Jimmy Palmiotti and Phil Noto's comic for cinema, Variety reports.

The New West takes place against a near-future LA backdrop, where a disgraced former police chief must rescue the city's mayor with only a horse and a sword at his disposal.

Gareb Shamus will produce the adaptation for Benderspink with Chris Bender, JC Spink and Jake Weiner, though cast and crew are yet to be appointed.

Palmiotti, a current co-writer on DC Comics' All-Star Western, has had work adapted as film and television projects in the past, including the 2005 TV movie Painkiller Jane and its spinoff series.

The New West was originally published by Black Bull Entertainment in 2005.
