Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld has sold the option for Brigade, and several other of his creator-owned properties as part of an interconnected Extreme Cinematic Universe, reports Deadline. Graham King and Fundamental Films have optioned the multi-faceted property, enlisting Akiva Goldsman to co-produce the movies with Liefeld and his manager, Brooklyn Weaver from Energy Entertainment.
"People love these comics. Looking forward to doing them justice with 2 powerhouse filmmakers," Liefeld tweeted.
This deal reportedly covers nine different Liefeld titles - Brigade, Bloodstrike, Cybrid, Lethal, Re-Gex, Bloodwulf, Battlestone, Kaboom, and Nitrogen. Neither Youngblood or Prophet are named in the deal despite being major parts of Liefeld's creator-owned universe; both were previously optioned for film deals.
According to Deadline, Goldsman and Liefeld intend to do a "writer's room" approach with the Extreme Cinematic Universe titles - something Goldsman has done previously for Hasbro's Transformers.
