Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi have been hired to co-direct the pilot of WGN's Scalped adaptation, according to Deadline. Based on the DC/Vertigo title by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera, Scalped has been in development with WGN for three years. The directing duo became popular for their drama Black, and were hired in 2016 to helm a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie.
Scalped is a crime story set on a Native American reservation. No casting for the pilot has been announced, but Scalped will feature a predominantly Native American cast. Geoff Johns will co-produce the series.
No premiere date for Scalped has been set.
