Rob Liefeld Releases YOUNGBLOOD Movie Script Online

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Rob Liefeld's groundbreaking Youngblood Image comic book, the artist/writer has released a movie script he wrote online as a PDF that fans can download for free.

Comic book legend Rob Liefeld is getting a head start on celebrating the 25th Anniversary of his Youngblood comic book.  If you're thinking Liefeld is trying to replicate the development strategy of Deadpool, he writes that's not the case as the project is not currently being sent around to any film studios.  Back in 2009, Reliance purchased the rights to Youngblood from Liefeld in a six-figure deal and hired Brett Ratner to direct but it sounds like film rights are now back with Liefeld.

Liefeld writes on Facebook, "As we approach the 25th anniversary of the launch of Youngblood and Image Comics I am sharing unknown items and relics from its past. I loaded up my Youngblood screenplay available for download on my website. It's not being shopped around, it's for the fans and in all honesty it's how I would launch the book if I had a do-over. Link to my website in my bio."
