Ass-kicking priests comic The Order coming to the big screen

Vatican priests with a penchant for the paranormal may be coming to a theater near you soon, as the graphic novel The Order has officially been optioned for a movie deal.

Developed by Arcana/Benderspink, the comic is based around an elite team brought together by the Vatican to "travel the world and combat supernatural forces." If there were ever a premise destined to become an awesome film, that'd be it.

Producer Scott Stuber (Ted) is locked in once his schedule clears, and the team behind the comic will also be involved with the development of the storyline and script.

It's definitely a cool premise, and could work almost like a mix between Constantine and ABC's short-lived TV series Miracles, with a little more crazy action thrown in for good measure.

What do you think? Would you like to see this comic on the big screen?
