Matthew Fox to Play Billy Smoke

LOST star Matthew Fox is close to signing his next movie deal to play the comic book character Billy Smoke. The character of Billy Smoke is an assassin, but is like Fox's character on LOST, because he is seeking redemption.

Here are the details:

Matthew Fox (Speed Racer, "Lost") is in negotiations to star in Warner Bros.' Billy Smoke, based on the Oni Press comic about a hit man seeking redemption, says Variety.

The project is produced by Basil Iwanyk at Thunder Road and Eric Gitter at Closed on Mondays Entertainment. Oni's Peter Sherwin will executive produce.

The story centers on an elite hit man who's nearly killed during a botched job and realizes that his only way to find redemption is to rid the world of all assassins.

The comic book series, written by B. Clay Moore and illustrated by Eric Kim, will be published by Oni Press next year.
