With the "Painkiller Jane" feature film progressing, Jimmy Palmiotti - the character's co-creator - has stated repeatedly that he feels this attempt to bring his creation to live-action life will truly enable him to have his vision for the character become a reality.

What differentiates the upcoming film from the previous TV-movie and subsequent TV series starring the character, Palmiotti believes, are two things.

One, he is co-writing the screenplay.

Number two, the twins directing the film - Jen and Sylvia Soska - say they are on the same page as Palmiotti when it comes to bringing the anti-heroine to life.

"Without a doubt", says Sylvia Soska, in response to whether or not her sister and she share the same vision as Palmiotti for the character. "With the way that Jimmy writes and all the comics out there with Jane in them, I feel that is Painkiller Jane."

" I think that's the only vision on a project like this", Sylvia Soska concludes.

Jen Soska agrees.

"Absolutely", Jen Soska says. "It's his Jane that we want to bring to the big screen. It's the Jane we've all been wanting to see."

"Painkiller Jane" is set for a 2015 release.
