Warner Bros. has picked up the film rights to Capeshooters, an upcoming comic from Rob Liefeld. Bryan Singer is set to produce through his WB-based Bad Hat Harry Productions.
In the comic, two slackers become paparazzi who specialize in shooting video of superheroes. But they find themselves on the run when they uncover evidence that a legendary hero is actually a villain.
The screenplay is being written by J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani, who work on Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show and American Idol.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brooklyn Weaver of Energy Entertainment and Liefield will produce in some capacity. Bad Hat Harry’s Alex Garcia will executive produce.
