Drew Pearce to Adapt DC Comic THE MIGHTY
Pearce is also working on two Marvel properties at the moment in Iron Man 3 and Runaways. This all can be traced back to No Heroics, the superhero sitcom he created for ITV2.
Paramount acquired the feature rights to the DC comic The Mighty earlier this summer. Variety reports the studio has hired Drew Pearce to adapt the screenplay. The comic, written by Peter J. Tomasi and Keith Champagne, centers on America’s first and only superhero, Alpha One: “a cop whose life was saved by Alpha One as a child has uncovered his hero’s dark plan that will put them on a collision course of an ordinary man versus a super-man.” BenderSpink partners Chris Bender and JC Spink (Arthur) will produce with Jake Weiner (Leap Year).
