Neal Moritz Looking to Adapt Comic Book Talent for TV
Those who are fans of Preacher are in for a real treat as another comic book series may soon become a TV show. Television producer Neal Moritz, whose work has included Preacher, is in the process of developing a television series based off of the comic book miniseries Talent.
According to CmmicBook.com, Comic book publisher Boom! Studios sold the rights of Talent to Moritz’s production company Original Films. Moritz will be a producer on the project alongside Boom! executives Ross Ritchie, Stephen Christie, and Adam Yoelin. The four-issue series, which was released in 2006, follows a college professor who survives a plane crash and discovers that he has absorbed the powers of the passengers on the plane. He soon finds himself on the run from a mysterious organization who is out to get him. The project was originally in the process of being developed into a film back in 2011. The potential film was being made under Universal Studios, with a draft of the script written by Zack Whedon.
Reports reveal that the TV version of Talent will have a different vision from the film version. Boom! has been incredibly busy as they are working on a film based on the graphic novel The Empty Man that comes out in 2018. They are also adapting Mouse Guard and Irredeemable for Fox. We don’t know for sure if Talent is heading to Fox or if it will go to Moritz’s partner Sony. What do you guys think?
