Well that clears that up then  :)

Thanks guys, oh and I'm really looking forward to this, Button Man is my third favourite all time 2000AD strip, right after Nikolai Dante and Judge Dredd.

Well, Matt Reeves is a very talented man those Planets of the Apes films are excellent. He's Filming the next Batman movie, and we all know which 2000AD character Batman met, so you never know. But seriously its looking very good for Button Man. Let's hope other Producers, writers and Directors see something worth pursuing in the 2000AD Universe. Hey, 2000ADMU sounds fine to me. ;)

Happy to know that Reeves is involved in some capacity. The rebooted POTAs movies were excellent.

I'd love to see Nicolaj Coster-Waldau cast as Harry! Excellent in Shot Caller, and pretty much anything I've seen him in.

Ooh- now that's a good call. I've seen him in a few other roles and he'd make a good Harry.

Great idea.   I've only seen him in GoT but as a somewhat posh, blond, handsome psychopath, he doesn't have far to jump from Jaime to Harry.

I chatted briefly to John Wagner about Buttonman at Lawless.

“Congratulations on the Buttonman Netflix show!” I said in my ridiculous Sunderland accent.
“Thanks Pete!” He relied!
“Ah think Harry should be played by Sean Bean, like!” was my Mackem retort.
“Fuck off!” He roared “Too fucking Northern!”

Cheeky git  :D

Sean Bean should play one of the other Buttons, thus adding to his mighty collection of death scenes.

Maybe Sean could be a 'voice'.

Yeah - He couldn't be Harry, for that reason :-)

Get Seans Bean and Pertwee both as rival buttons, and we could have some seriously gruesome deaths to enjoy. Not that I'm advocating Paul W S Anderson for director. Neil Marshall, on the other hand...

Neil Marshall would be an excellent choice for Director.

Failing that, we could give Alex Garland the job.

I was looking through a list of British Actors, and since Harry strikes me as an older man, Iain Glen of GoT Fame's face leered out at me. I doubt a stone-cold killer would interest him, but you never know.

I second that.

And if Matt Reeves is still involved, I wouldn’t mind seeing Iain Glen playing Alfred in his Batman movie.
