Drew Pearce graduates from British sit com about superheroes to the real thing (well, as real as superheroes ever get)
The writer of ITV2 sit com No Heroics , Drew Pearce, has become the surprise choice to adapt the Marvel comic Runaways for the big screen, reports Deadline New York .
The comic features a team of teen superheroes who go on the run when they discover their parents are supervillains. It was created by Brian K Vaughan who was once attached to write the script. Pete ( Nick And Nora’s Infinite Playlist ) Sollett, is directing
No Heroics , ITV2’s first original sit com, debuted in 2008 and followed the off-duty lives (a lot of it in a bar) of a bunch of superheroes in a skewed alternate reality Britain. It was alright. We’ve given you a little YouTube clip below to remind you what it was like.
