    Default Runaways (Marvel Movie) - News/Discussion/Speculation

    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.

    The RUNAWAYS Movie Gets A Screenwriter

    I'd like to think the Runaways are reading a Variety article about themselves.You might remember from a while back that NICK & NORA’S INFINITE PLAYLIST director, Pete Sollett, is attached to direct a big screen adaptation of RUNAWAYS. Now, that project’s got a writer, according to Deadline, and his name's Neil Pearce. Who's he? A screenwriter who’s actually already got a history of handling the lighter, funnier side of superheroics. Why’s that? He’s the creator of the British show, NO HEROICS.
