Robert Evans and Stan Lee are teaming up to produce Foreverman, a new superhero franchise for Paramount Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Hellboy writer Peter Briggs has been hired to write the screenplay in collaboration with Lee, who is creating an original superhero, complete with all the trappings of the best-known of Lee’s other creations. The character will have the problems of saving the world as well as the problems of dealing with everyday life.
Evans and Lee’s POW! Entertainment is producing the feature in tandem with Idiom Films. The partners plan to create a range of ancillary ventures to complement the franchise, which will include comic book material on the superhero and other characters in the story.
