Bryan Singer’s Bad Hat Harry Productions is teaming with Radical Pictures to develop of live-action adaptation of the mecha miniseries Freedom Formula.
Radical Publishing is introducing the five-issue series this week at Comic-Con, and will release the first issue in August. (Newsarama spoke with Radical’s Barry Levine about the title last week.)
The comic, created by Edmund Shern, is set in a future in which racing exo-suits have replaced fighter jets. The story centers on Zee, a genetically engineered racer who transforms himself into the hero of a dying city.
Singer and Levine will produce. Jesse Berger, Edmund Shern, Alex Garcia and Michael Zoumas will be executive producers.
This is the second comic-book adaptation this week for both Bad Hat Harry and Radical. On Tuesday, Warner Bros. announced it has optioned Rob Liefeld’s upcoming comic Capeshooters for Singer to produce. That was quickly followed by news that Hancock director Peter Berg will produce and develop Hercules: The Thracian Wars for Universal, based on the Radical miniseries.
