The blockbuster "Deadpool" was a resounding success in the world's cinemas, deservedly hitting the top ten highest-grossing films in 2016. And now, it seems, one of the creators of the mercenary in red tights Rob Lifeld will continue to conquer Hollywood. We previously reported that his graphic novel "Evangeline" will receive a screen version, and now the portal Deadline writes that a whole series will be created based on the comics of Lifefeld universe.|
Oscar-winning producer Graham King ("The Departed") and Fundamental Films acquired the rights to film adaptation of the so-called Extreme Universe , created by Lifefeld and includes nine episodes, the characters of which are more than a hundred characters. Like Deadpool , all of these comics have a characteristic extravagance and provocative humor. Akiva Goldsman will collaborate with King on such a large-scale undertaking. He is no stranger to such a scale - it was Goldsman who headed the group of authors "Transformers". He intends to apply the same approach with the use of a whole team of writers to the new universe.
“For the past 25 years since Image Comics was founded, I have watched these stories and characters resonate with generations of readers. The opportunity to work with Akiva Goldsman and Graham King , to give the screen life to interesting characters is akin to making a cherished dream come true! ", - Lifefeld .
It is noteworthy that Goldsman together with Paramount is engaged in the adaptation of the aforementioned comic "Evangeline" , so it is possible that the major will pay attention to the whole universe based on the comics of the same author.
