Rob Liefeld’s YOUNGBLOOD has been optioned for a possible movie, possibly directed by Brett Ratner (RUSH HOUR, X-MEN 3):
The company paid mid six figures for the rights to “Youngblood,” about a superhero team sanctioned and overseen by the U.S. government.
“Most of the great graphic novels are gone, and ‘Youngblood’ is one of the few comic books left with tentpole potential,” Ratner told the trade. “It was a real personal passion project for me, and a lot of people wanted (‘Youngblood’), but the amazing thing about the guys at Reliance is the speed with which they’re able to move.”
Be afraid; be very afraid.
