Seth Rogen Is Making A New Superhero Movie
It's not the first time he's made a superhero film...
Seth Rogen is bringing a new superhero story to the big screen, teaming up with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman for a big-screen adaptation of his comic-book, Invincible.
Kirkman’s longest-running series after the zombie apocalypse mega-saga, Invincible follows a teenage boy struggling to cope with the fact that his father is Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero on the planet.
Rogen will be working with long-term creative partner Evan Goldberg to write and direct the project, with the pair releasing a joint statement to announce the news. “No matter how much damage it causes our bodies, minds, and our most intimate relationships with those we love,” said the duo, “we will not rest until Invincible is as great a movie as it deserves to be.”
Kirkman also sounds pretty pleased with the situation, saying that, “Invincible's surprising, edgy, shocking, and oftentimes blood-soaked story couldn't be in more capable hands.” Rogen and Goldberg have previous experience with the genre of course, having recently brought the Preacher series to the small screen. Rogen also starred in The Green Hornet, although we won’t say much more about that…
There’s no release date attached to Invincible just yet, giving you plenty of time to brush up on the comics. Given that the first one came out back in 2003, you’ve got some catching up to do…
