Drew Pearce to pen ‘Mighty’

'Iron Man 3' scribe to adapt DC Comic

Paramount has tapped British TV writer-producer Drew Pearce to write “The Mighty,” an adaptation of the DC Comic series set up with Mary Parent and Cale Boyter at their Disruption Entertainment banner.

Pearce was tapped in March to pen “Iron Man 3,” already skedded for a May 3, 2013, release through Disney. Shane Black is attached to direct.

Par acquired rights to “The Mighty” in early June. Chris Bender and JC Spink will produce via their Benderspink banner, and Jake Weiner will be involved in a producing capacity.

“The Mighty,” an original graphic novel from writers Peter J. Tomasi and Keith Champagne, tells the story of Alpha-One, the world’s most powerful super-being, who has always been a force for good. But a cop whose life was saved by Alpha One as a child has uncovered his hero’s dark plan, putting them on a collision course.

Pearce’s TV producing credits include “No Heroics,” “Lip Service” and “Damage Control.”

Pearce is repped by WME.
