MTV’s Splash Page spoke with comic creator Rob Liefeld, following his recent Twitter announcement that he was meeting with director Brett Ratner to discuss the live action movie based on Liefeld’s Image Comics superteam Youngblood. The comic book launched the Image Comics line back in 1992 and has had a sporadic publishing schedule at various publishers in the 16 years since, but Liefeld seems genuinely enthusiastic about his creations being brought to the screen. (Sidenote: Liefeld also co-created Deadpool, who appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.)
Liefeld talked to Splash Page about the writers on the project, J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani, who are also writing another film project based on one of Liefeld’s creations, the Bryan Singer-produced Capeshooters.
You can read what Liefeld said about the hiring of the writers and some thoughts on the characters over on MTV Splash Page.
