Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ Gets a Writer

Peter Sollet (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) will direct the upcoming adaptation of the Marvel comic book Runaways. The project now has a writer under the name of Drew Pearce, creator of the UK superhero sitcom No Heroics.

Runaways is an award-winning comic book series published by Marvel Comics. The series features a group of teenagers who discover that their parents are part of an evil crime group called the Pride. Created by Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, Y: The Last Man) and Adrian Alphona, the series debuted in April of 2003. Despite debuting in 2003, the actual series itself was launched in 2002 as part of Marvel Comics’ “Tsunami” imprint. The series had been canceled in September 2004 at issue eighteen, but due to high numbers of trade collection sales, Marvel revived the series in February of 2005 and it has continued ever since.
