Paramount Pictures has acquired rights to the DC Comics property The Mighty for a new feature adaptation. A screenwriter hasn't been attached yet to adapt the comic book, which was created by Keith Champagne and Peter Tomasi. Here's a description of The Mighty below.
"The Mighty tells the story of Alpha-One, the world's most powerful super-being, who has always been a force for good, but Gabriel Cole, a cop who's life was saved by Alpha One as a child, has uncovered his hero's dark plan that will put them on a collision course of an ordinary man versus a super-man."
While most DC Comics titles land at Warner Bros., creators Keith Champagne and Peter Tomasi control the rights to their series and opted for Paramount.
No production schedule has been determined yet for The Mighty. Mary Parent, Cale Boyter, and J.C. Spink are attached as producers.
