According to The Hollywood Reporter, Josh Olson, who adapted the upcoming A History of Violence for New Line Cinema and David Cronenberg, has signed on to adapt another comic book for the studio. Olson will adapt Monster, a best-selling Japanese manga comic book series from author Naoki Urasawa. As part of the deal, Olson will pen a treatment for a sequel, which he also will write.

Monster is a psychological thriller that tells the story of a young doctor who saves the life of a little boy only to find out a few years later that the life he saved was that of a brilliant killer. The doctor must track down the young killer and solve a larger conspiracy.
