Youngblood Still In Script Phase!

So says Brett Ratner! This project was in Script Phase 9 months ago, so what gives?

Brett Ratner, not to be confused with Bill Shatner, is saying that Youngblood is still in a sort of developmental hell.

"I'm working on the script," Ratner told MTV News. "'Youngblood will be something I do in the future, whether it's next year or whatever."

"I'm never going to do another 'X-Men' obviously, and I'm not doing any more with 'Rush Hour,'" he explained. "But to do a new franchise, I don't care what the budget is, even if it was small, but it would be exciting because then I could start my own franchise. I could do what Bryan Singer did with 'X-Men.'"

This is the same tune he sung about 9 months ago. So to me this sounds like this project is stuck in a "No distributor funk" meaning Brett has no studio to back Youngblood up. I could be way off and totally wrong but if a certain studio thought this movie was going to be the next 'Big Franchise' then I'm certain that some studio somewhere would have picked this project up and gave it the green light.

More from Ratner:

"I've been in a lot of things – 'God of War,' which didn't work out, 'Conan the Barbarian,' which didn't work out," Ratner continued. "So I'm interested in comic books. I grew up reading comic books. Even though all the rumors said, 'Oh, Brett didn't read comics,' but I read 'Batman' and 'Superman.' 'Superman' was my favorite comic, which is why I was first attached to make 'Superman.' 'Youngblood,' obviously, I discovered later in life and I just fell in love with it."

Somehow I think this article turned into the 'Brett Ratner Fail List'! How many strikes does one get before they are out?

What about that fun Robert Pattinson/Youngblood rumor that surfaced last year? Brett tried to clear the air by saying:

"I was just throwing a name out there because he was hot," Brett said. "When we get the script, then I'm going to go to the best actor for the role."

Talk about back peddling!
