Josh Mond To Director Film Version of Who is Jake Ellis? The film adaptation of the comic book miniseries Who is Jake Ellis? has been in development for about a year and had David Yates at one time as a director. However, Yates has now been replaced with director Josh Mond.

The project, which was previously called Jake Ellis, was in development for 20th Century Fox since 2015 as the studio was in search for a new director after the Harry Potter director left. Now it seems that Josh Mond has been attached to direct the feature film, according to Deadline. Mond made his debut as a director last year in the Sundance Film Festival hit James White and this would mark his second film after receiving acclaim for his first film.

Who is Jake Ellis? was released as a five-issue miniseries in 2011 by Image Comics. Created by Nathan Edmondson and Tonci Zonjic, the espionage series follows former CIA analyst Jon Moore as he is on the run from the government after escaping a lab where they subjected him in various mind experiments. The rogue spy finds out that he has a voice in his head named Jake Ellis who helps him in tight spots. Moore and Ellie both try to find answers as to what the government did to them and where Jake is, whether he’s real or not. The series followed up with a sequel in 2012 called Where is Jake Ellis?
