Sony Picks Up Millar’s Heroes

“Wanted” creator Mark Millar’s six issue comic mini-series “War Heroes” has been picked up by Sony Pictures and producer Michael DeLuca to adapt says The Hollywood Reporter.

The comic book revolves around an experimental military program that grants ordinary soldiers superpowers. A small group of these superpowered soldiers break away from the government to form a criminal enterprise, and a hero rises from their ranks to prevent a catastrophe from happening.

A writer is presently being sought for the project and no start date has been set.
