Paramount Pictures has bought film rights to Robert Kirkman’s teen-superhero comic Invincible and set up the potential franchise starter with Paramount-based Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Circle of Confusion, reports Variety.
Kirkman will write the film’s story, based on the bestselling Image Comics series about the coming of age of teen Mark Grayson, son of the world’s most powerful superhero. The story will focus on the father/son dynamic during the time that the son, who appears to be a normal teen, begins to exhibit his father’s powers.
Di Bonaventura is a producer on Warner Bros.’ Constantine and Universal’s “Doom,” due out this summer. Circle of Confusion is producing “Magic Kingdom for Sale” and Jinx at Universal and “Awful End” at Warner Bros.
