Marvel hires The Runaways Screenwriter
British writer Drew Pearce to script The Runaways
Marvel Studios has picked a writer to draft "Runaways," the live action film based on the cult favorite comic book (created by "Lost" writer Brian K. Vaughan) about the children of super villains who try to use their evil powers for heroic purposes.
The job has gone to Drew Pearce. Considering the number of scribes who wanted the job, Pearce is a relative unknown, but seems a good match for the subject matter when you consider his previous superhero work. Pearce is a British writer who created "No Heroics," a humorous UK television series about a bar that's a hangout for superheroes who aren't allowed to use their powers while knocking back pints.
Pete Sollett (Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist) is set to direct.
