“Deadpool” creator Rob Liefeld’s comic “Shrink” is being adapted into a feature for Sony Pictures.
The story has been described as a high-concept twist on “Analyze This” and has an R-rated comedic action tone – a wise-cracking, subversive take on superheroes.
The main character is Dr. Jessica Powers, a strong, smart and intuitive psychiatrist who attempts to help the mental problems of heroes who lead big, complicated lives (to say the least).
Glenn Ficarra and John Requa penned the script nearly twenty years ago with Sony picking up the lapsed rights again recently. The project will be produced by Liefeld, Adam Fields and Doug Belgrad.
