Comic Book Movie Night: Talent

TV scribe Zack Whedon has been brought on to adapt the graphic novel "Talent" for Universal. Marc Platt is onboard to produce via his Marc Platt Prods. along with Ross Richie and Andrew Cosby.

The story follows a professor who, after surviving a plane crash, finds he has inherited the abilities of the passengers who have died. A secret group hunts him down when he begins to use those abilities. Talent is a miniseries/graphic novel written by Christopher Golden and novelist Tom Sniegoski, illustrated by Paul Azaceta, and published by BOOM! Studios.

Universal has had the project for awhile. They got the rights in a bidding war back in 2006 but bringing Whedon aboard is expected to stir momentum.

Whedon most recently worked on AMC's "Rubicon" and Fox's "Fringe." But has some comic book chops with his work writing The Terminator: 1984 miniseries for Dark Horse.
