Rob Liefeld, the co-creator of Deadpool, could have a new movie universe in the works.
Akiva Goldman and China’s Fundamental Films have picked up the rights to Extreme Universe, which encompasses “nine comic book titles and nearly 100 characters”.
Goldsman is said to be setting up a writers’ room to start figuring out what an Extreme Universe movie might look like, and the hope is that he’ll be able to stretch it into a “multi-film franchise.”
In a statement, Liefeld said: “Over the past nearly 25 years, since launching Image Comics, I’ve been lucky enough to see the power of these stories and characters as they’ve resonated with several generations of comic book fans. To now be able to work with Akiva Goldsman and Graham King, who are powerhouses in their own right, to bring these compelling characters and conflicts to life on the big screen is nothing short of a dream come true!“
