Sony, DeLuca gear up for ‘War’

Studio to adapt comic book for bigscreen

Sony has picked up Mark Millar and Tony Harris’ comicbook “War Heroes” for Michael De Luca to produce.

Studio’s Columbia Pictures is currently seeking a writer to adapt the books, which revolve around an experimental military program that gives ordinary soldiers superpowers. When a small group of recruits break off to use these powers for a criminal enterprise, a hero rises from their ranks to prevent catastrophic results.

Several studios had been vying for the six-part property, which began publishing in June through Image Comics.

Millar and Harris will be exec producers on the pic, along with Zach Schiff Abrams.

Universal scored this summer with an adaptation of Millar’s graphic novel “Wanted.” An adaptation of his comicbook “Kick-Ass” is lensing with Matthew Vaughn at the helm.

A sequel to “Wanted” is in the works at U.
