Deadline New York reports that Marvel Studios is negotiating with Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist helmer Peter Sollett to direct Runaways, based on the comic book series co-created by Brian K. Vaughan and artist Adrian Alphona.
Runaways follows a group of teenagers who find that some family secrets are bigger than others when they discover their parents are actually super-villains. Running away from their homes, the teens band together and begin a journey of discovery, both of their parents’ origins and of their own inherited powers, while trying to make up for the evil done by their folks.
The film will be distributed under Marvel’s pre-Disney deal with Paramount Pictures.
