Neufeld in control of ‘Powers’ for Sony

Co-creators paid low- against high-six figures for rights

Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, co-creators of Image Comics’ “Powers,” have sold the feature rights to their comic book to Sony-based producer Mace Neufeld (“Clear and Present Danger”).

The duo will be paid low- against high-six figures.

Neufeld exec David Engel brought the project into the company and will oversee its development. The shingle plans to hire a feature scribe to pen the adaptation. Sony exec Doug Belgrad will oversee the project for the studio.

Super investigations

“Powers” features a homicide detective whose job is to solve crimes that are superpower-related.

Bendis is also writing Marvel Comics’ “Ultimate Spider-Man” — the mass-market relaunch of “Spider-Man” — as well as “Daredevil.”

The comic book creator is especially known for his series “Jinx” and “Goldfish,” both of which sold to Dimension last year. He also created the comic book “Fortune and Glory,” which shows what it’s like for a comic book artist to deal with Hollywood.

Bendis is repped by Justin Silvera and Chris Silvermann at Broder Kurland, Webb & Uffner.
