Youngblood Movie Writers Revealed by Rob Liefeld

Rob Liefeld, "Youngblood" creator and artist has shared the scoop on who's going to be writing the big screen adaptation of his comic book.

While talking to MTV Liefeld revealed that "Youngblood" would be written by J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani who are also adapting his comic “Capeshooters” with Warner Bros. The "Youngblood" script is currently in the first draft stage and Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand) has already been attached as the director.

“They were the guys everyone wanted for ‘Capeshooters’ at 11 AM at Warner Bros a year ago, and then at 3 PM, I met with Brett [Ratner] and his producing partner, and Brett says, ‘I know exactly who we have to get to write this: Lavin and Damiani,’” said Liefeld.

"Youngblood" is a superhero team tied with the government and the film is aiming for a PG-13 rating along the lines of "Iron Man". The story is set to focus on the team leaders of Shaft and Chapel.

“They don’t like each other,” said Liefeld. “Shaft is the new kid on the block in the movie, and he and Chapel have to put aside their differences to save the Youngblood program.”

Also Liefeld revealed that the character of Badrock, who turns to stone, won't be in the film because he doesn't quite fit in for what they want to do.
