Paramount Pictures has hired Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce to draft another superhero tale, The Mighty. We reported last month that the studio acquired the rights to the graphic novel, which was created by Keith Champagne and Peter Tomasi. Take a look at a description of the graphic novel below from our report last month.
"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."
Mary Parent and Cale Boyter will produce The Mighty through their Disruption Entertainment banner, along with Benderspink's Chris Bender and J.C. Spink.
No production schedule was given for The Mighty at this time.
