‘FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics’ The Latest Vertigo Title To Enter The Movie Pipeline
Less than a year into its run at Vertigo, Hollywood is already calling for writer Simon Oliver, artist Robbi Rodriguez and colorist Rico Renzi‘s tripped-out sci-fi comic FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics.
Deadline reports that Justin Marks, writer of the upcoming live-action Jungle Book movie and of the screenplay for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, is adapting a treatment written by Oliver. David S. Goyer, who has been a driving force behind a good many DC Comics movie properties over the past several years, will produce.
This won’t be the first time Goyer and Marks have teamed up on a project. The two co-wrote still-in-development/likely shelved movie, Green Arrow: Escape From Supermax.
This has to be fantastic news for the FBP team, which hit a roadblock in the early going when the book had to change its title from Collider to the current title after the creative team of another book claimed to have already secured the name Collider.
As the new title indicates, the series is about a team of first responders who deal with quantum physics disturbances. In the world of the comic, they’re among the list of emergency services people hear when they call 911.
