Marvel's Runaways tries picking up a director

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Tuesday, April 6, 2010

More Marvel movies! Not satisfied with dominating the superhero landscape for motion pictures, Marvel Studios is also working on a dozen othr projects, all of them mostly still in the dreaded wasteland of development hell. One of those projects that may be considered a little bit further along is Runaways, the adaptation of the Brian K. Vaughan/Adrian Alphona comic book series created in 2003.

The comic tells the adventures of a group of middle-aged teenagers who discover that their parents are in fact supervillains. Each of the kids has their own unique superpower or ability and together they rise up against their evil-folk and form a makeshift team headquartered underneath the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles. The Runaways movie was first announced in 2008 and, like a wooly mammoth trapped in the black goo above the Runaways HQ, doesn't seem able to get unstuck from the quagmire.

But Hollywood is persistent. Hoping to move their Runaways movie to the next stage of development, Marvel Studios is hoping to snare Peter Sollett, the director of Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist, to the project. Nothing's official yet but the deal was set up before Marvel was gobbled up by Disney, meaning that Paramount has the screen rights for the film. Have you ever seen an angry Mickey Mouse?
