The Hollywood Reporter reveals that producer Howard Gordon (24) is teaming up with Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis for a new television series at Fox called Vigilant. According to the site, it will be, "a 'superhero' origin story told through the unlikely point of view of a smart 20-year-old woman who happens to be a social outcast. After an honorable veteran detective is brutally coerced into working for the corrupt head of Internal Affairs, the detective's daughter plans her revenge by creating a fictional vigilante persona to take on the criminal elements within the police department and the city." As well as penning the script, Landis actually conceived the idea and it certainly won't hurt its chances of success by having Homeland's Howard Gordon serving as executive producer.

Give it a chance you cocksuckers.

Sounds like a POS idea. I loved Chronicle and I love the idea of a Superhero TV drama, but this premise sounds like shit. Go back to the drawing board.

"Forget Powers"? Umm never!

Maybe. Not going to say no to it until I see it.

Well this'll last a season and then get cancelled

No thanks, Arrow, and SHIELD look great tho!

This will be shit.

And that isn't my opinion. It's a fact.
lokibane2012 - 9/17/2012, 8:00 PM
At least it won't be as bad as Arrow.

In that, it will only be a crap show. As opposed to a crap show that is also disrespectful to an existing superhero.

Damn, are we so cynical that the basic outline of a premise of a potential show gets us all riled up?
Bandrews1 - 9/17/2012, 8:28 PM
Sounds interesting, this could be good

Maybe?

I haven't watched CHRONICLE yet, and it looks cool, but after watching that video Max Landis made about the DEATH OF SUPERMAN, I'm convinced he's a douche. He was trying to diss a good story by saying it was stupid, and while making his points, you could tell he didn't even read it. He was just laughing his douche ass off the whole time, cause he got real actors to play parts in his F#CKRY.

Max Landis you are NOT funny.

i think its funny how everyones trashing this show after a paragraph of early information.

I'll just save my opinian of it until is i see somemore about it

@KNIGHT3000

The director and actors were what made Chronicle great, not his writing. Max is a product of the Planet Los Angeles bubble & does come off like a privileged douche. So apparently the only thing his father ever put into this world worth mentioning is still An American Werewolf in London. ;P

@NathimusPrime, good point, i'll wait till i see something more concrete, so far it's not making the best impression..

@Cipher, Good for you. He needed to be put in his place
