‘The Losers’ wins its way to WB

Berg to pen screenplay, co-produce

A double-crossed CIA black ops team known as “The Losers” is the latest DC Comics property to be tapped for the bigscreen by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Peter Berg and Akiva Goldsman will produce the pic for the studio, with Berg to pen the screenplay with an eye to direct. Also taking producing credit are John Cameron and Sarah Aubrey for Berg’s Film 44, and Kerry Foster for Goldsman’s Weed Road.

Film will follow the exploits of the highly skilled CIA team members as they are attacked by their own agency and left for dead. They set out to learn why they were betrayed, and to avenge the wrong, as well as other injustices they encounter.

DC Comics, a subsid of Warner Bros., and home to numerous comicbook heroes including “Batman” and “Superman,” revived “The Losers” strip several years ago under the Vertigo imprint after a 30-year hiatus.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ Dan Lin and creative exec Matt Reilly are overseeing “Losers” for the studio. Gregory Noveck is the development exec at DC Comics.

Berg, also an actor, is set to direct upcoming projects “The Kingdom” and “Bran Mak Morn.” He penned and directed “Friday Night Lights” and helmed “The Rundown” for Universal Pictures, where he has a deal.
