Marvel’s Runaways To Start Filming In January?

Production Weekly reports that Marvel plans to begin filming the adaptation of Runaways in January.

Created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, Runaways centers on six kids who discover their parents are super-villains known as the Pride. Fleeing from their homes, the kids band together to learn about their inherited powers, defeat the Pride and make up for the evil committed by their parents.

Runaways debuted in 2003 as part of Marvel’s short-lived Tsunami imprint, but was canceled after just 18 issues. The series has been relaunched and canceled two more times, under such creators as Joss Whedon, Michael Ryan, Terry Moore, Humberto Ramos, Kathryn Immonen and Sara Pichelli.

The film adaptation was announced in May 2008, with Vaughan writing the screenplay. It was reported this spring that Peter Sollett (Nick And Nora’s Infinite Playlist) was negotiating to direct, while Drew Pearce (No Heroics) had been hired to tackle the script.

    That actually looks good. But then, so did the trailer for The Happening. Having just had to sit through The Last Airbender with my niece, Shyamalan has burned through the last of the credit he had with me. Will his only being the producer/story credit be enough to lure me back?

    he better read the comics or have someone who has help him cause the comics r good and the movie shouldn't stray to far from them. if marvel screws this up i will lose ALL faith in them.
