Sony Pictures has acquired the rights to Mark Millar’s popular comic book War Heroes for Michael DeLuca to produce. According to Variety, Sony’s Columbia Pictures is currently seeking a writer for the project.
The comic book revolves around an experimental military program that grants ordinary soldiers superpowers. A small group of these superpowered soldiers break away from the government to form a criminal enterprise, and a hero rises from their ranks to prevent a catastrophe from happening. The six-part comic book was first published in June of this year from Image Comics.
No start date has been set for War Heroes. In the same story, Universal is confirmed to be moving ahead with a sequel to Wanted, which is also based on a comic book by Mark Millar.
