Hostel direct Eli Roth is gearing up to write and direct an Episode of Heroes: Orgins. According to Variety, Superman Returns writer Michael Dougherty will also be penning an episode of this Heroes spin-off.
Kevin Smith was announced as a writer-director on the series earlier this year. The spin-off will run for six episodes, and will follow the exploits of characters that have yet to be seen on the original series. Viewers will vote on which Heroes: Origins chracters they would like to see return for season three of Heroes.
The show will air midseason, during Heroes break. This will allow for a more seamless TV season for the entire franchise. This means there will be fewer repeats.
