THR is reporting that Chronicle scribe Max Landis is to work on a superhero TV series for Fox.
The site is claiming that he will pen a script along with Homeland writer/producer Howard Gordan.
The series is described as “a ‘superhero’ origin story told through the unlikely point of view of a smart 20-year-old woman who happens to be a social outcast. After an honorable veteran detective is brutally coerced into working for the corrupt head of Internal Affairs, the detective’s daughter plans her revenge by creating a fictional vigilante persona to take on the criminal elements within the police department and the city”.
However, since this news was announced Landis has come out and said that calling the new show a ‘superhero’ series is like calling “Taxi Drive a pre-cursor to Spider-Man 3″.
