Marvel's Runaways Movie Happening - Brian K. Vaughn's comic book adaptation circles a director.
Runaways the comic is this much closer to becoming Runaways the movie.
Uber movie news site Deadline New York has the scoop that Marvel Studios is in talks with Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist director Peter Sollett to helm the live-action adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn's fan-favorite comic.
Deadline reports that the film will be distributed by Paramount Pictures, as the project is one that comes under Marvel's pre-Disney deal.
For some reason, Deadline describes the project as "The Breakfast Club with superheroes", but the Runaways story is not fodder for a Judd Nelson comeback vehicle. Runaways follows a group of fugitive teens who realize that their parents are members of an evil crime syndicate called the Pride. Oh, and one of the kids has a pet dinosaur.
Look for this movie to hit theaters in 2012.
