Valiant's HARBINGER Adaptation Moving Forward, New Writer Hired

With the film stalled at Paramount, Valiant Entertainment will be taking over financing for their upcoming adaptation Harbinger, with a new writer brought on board and Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand) possibly directing.

A film adaptation of Valiant Comics' Harbinger was previously set up at Paramount Pictures, with X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner attached to helm. However, the project wa stalled at the studio due to rights issues, and according to Variety, Valiant Entertainment Group will be making the adaptation themselves. Stephen Susco, who most recently wrote Texas Chainsaw 3D and originally developed Harbinger for Paramount, has been hired to write the script. The site says that the film is still "a potential directing vehicle" for Ratner. Instead of having a studio develop the project, Valiant "sought financing and was given a capital infusion from private investment company Cuneo & Co. and partnered with former Marvel CEO and vice chairman Peter Cuneo to relaunch and independently develop their library of over 1,500 titles." Alexandra Milchan and Jay Stern will produce with Valiant Entertainment Group CEO Jason Kothari and chief creative officer Dinesh Shamdasani. A dark modern twist on superhero mythology, the Harbinger comic book series follows Pete Stanchek, a teenager-turned-superhero and his battle with a equally powerful industrialist. The series was created by Jim Shooter.
