Warner Bros. acquires ‘Capeshooters’

Bryan Singer to produce comic book adaptation

Warner Bros. has acquired “Capeshooters,” a comic book adaptation that will be produced by Bryan Singer’s WB-based Bad Hat Harry banner.

Singer, who has directed films about virtuous superheroes with the first two “X-Men,” “X2” and “Superman Returns,” is interested in exploring the darker side of the subject. He will only be producer on the project.

In “Capeshooters,” two slackers become paparazzi who specialize in shooting covert videos of superheroes find themselves on the run after they stumble onto evidence that a revered superhero is actually a villain.

J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani will write the script.

The project is based on an upcoming comic creation by Rob Liefeld, the former Marvel Comics artist who left to become co-founder of Image Comics. BHH’s Alex Garcia will be executive producer.
