Bryan Singer’s Bad Hat Harry Productions has teamed with Radical Pictures to develop a live-action feature from “Freedom Formula,” a five-issue comic book series created by Edmund Shern, reports Variety.
Radical Publishing is introducing the comic book at Comic-Con, and it will be released in August.
It’s described as a futuristic Top Gun in which racing exo-suits have replaced fighter jets. The story focuses on a genetically engineered racer who learns that his bloodline has the power to change society.
Singer will produce with Radical’s Barry Levine. Jesse Berger, Edmund Shern, Alex Garcia and Michael Zoumas will be executive producers.
“This is a timeless story about young people struggling to break free of authority. That’s what ultimately appealed to me,” Singer said.
