Warner Bros. Pictures has always managed to buy the rights of novels published by DC Comic. But now, breaking this tradition, Paramount Pictures has reportedly acquired the rights of DC Comic's graphic novel 'The Mighty'. The studio has successfully struck the deal to bring it to the big screen under their banner.
The DC Comic graphic novel is all about a superhero turning out to be a super-villain. According to sources, Mary Parent, Cale Boyter and J.C. Spink will team up to serve as the producers for the forthcoming movie. However, the director and cast members are yet to be announced.
'The Mighty' has originally been created by Peter J Tomasi and Keith Champagne. It follows Alpha One, the only superhero in the world, who turns out to be a different person he was meant to be. A mortal human cop Gabriel Cole, who was saved by Alpha One during his childhood, uncovers a bitter truth that the superhero plans to put them on a collision course of an ordinary man versus a super-man.
However, Paramount Pictures has distributed the superhero film Thor in May. The studio will release Super 8 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon in June.
