Is the Runaways movie finally moving ahead?
Slashfilm is reporting that “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” director Peter Sollett is in negotiations with Marvel to direct a big-screen adaption of the Runaways. Not to be confused with the biopic of the band with the same name, Runaways follows a group of teens who run away from home after finding out that their parents are super villians.
Joss Whedon is also rumored to be involved with the project. Whedon has a history with the characters, being one of their most outspoken fans. He has also written an arc of the series that was mired in delays. Marvel is reported to be looking for a “Breakfast Club” style tone with the project, something that seems to be missing in Hollywood these days in this writer’s opinion.
