Variety says that Warner Bros. has acquired Capeshooters, a comic book adaptation that will be produced by Bryan Singer’s WB-based Bad Hat Harry production company. The project is based on Image Comics co-founder Rob Liefeld’s upcoming comic.
Singer (X-Men, X2: X-Men United, Superman Returns) is interested in exploring the darker side of the subject. He will only be producer on the project. BHH’s Alex Garcia will executive produce.
In Capeshooters, two slackers become paparazzi who specialize in shooting covert videos of superheroes find themselves on the run after they stumble onto evidence that a revered superhero is actually a villain.
J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani will write the script.
