War Heroes Optioned for Film Adaptation

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Friday evening that “War Heroes,” the in-progress Image Comics miniseries by Mark Millar and Tony Harris, has been optioned for a film adaptation for Columbia Pictures with producer Michael DeLuca (“21,” “Boogie Nights,” “Seven”). Harris and Millar will executive produce.

“War Heroes” is set in a dystopian future where the American Empire has bankrupted itself on ceaseless military conflicts, and World War III will be fought with super-powered G.I.s. In the story, a group of these super soldiers employ the drugs that give them powers to pursue criminal ends.
