Youngblood film gets writers

Come with me, if you will, to the early 90s. MC Hammer was all the rage, the Buffalo Bills were mired in a four game losing streak when it comes to Super Bowls and Image was all the rage in comic book circles. One of those comics that was considered an industry darling was Rob Liefeld's Youngblood, the story of superheroes working for the government. Fast forward to now where MTV Splash Page reports that the property is being adapted to film and writers are well on their way to having a story put together. Screenwriters J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani are halfway through their first draft of the script for the Brett Ratner vehicle. Ironically, they're also working on a Bryan Singer film adapted from another Liefield work called Capeshooters. And Liefeld doesn't seem to mind. “They were the guys everyone wanted for ‘Capeshooters’ at 11 AM at Warner Bros a year ago, and then at 3 PM, I met with Brett [Ratner] and his producing partner, and Brett says, ‘I know exactly who we have to get to write this: Lavin and Damiani,’” said Liefeld. Unfortunately, all you Youngblood fans out there should know that a stalwart of the group won't be in the movie. Badrock, the aptly named boy made of stone, won't be in the movie because Liefeld feels that the character doesn't "fit" in the film. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
