Brett Ratner's "Youngblood" Gets Writers and Story Details

Posted: May 12th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Brett RatnerSubmit Comment
Back in February, news broke that the comic book series "Youngblood" will be brought to the big screen by "X-Men: The Last Stand" director Brett Ratner. The story revolves around a government-sanctioned team of superheroes who operated in the public eye while fighting super-powered threats and dealing with superhero-sized drama.

According "Youngblood" creator Rob Liefeld, the new movie is currently being written by TV writers JP Lavin and Chad Damiani, who are half-way through their first draft of the screenplay.

Story-wise, the veteran creator said the big-screen adaptation of "Youngblood" would focus on team members Shaft and Chapel, the bow-wielding marksman and gun-toting former soldier who lead the team. "They don't like each other," said Liefeld. "Shaft is the new kid on the block in the movie, and he and Chapel have to put aside their differences to save the Youngblood program."

However, one character that won't be appearing in the film is Badrock, the teenage boy with a body made of stone. Liefeld told MTV the decision to leave out Badrock was his choice, adding that the character "doesn't fit in first film."

Liefeld explained that the film was "looking to be in the 'Iron Man' neighborhood" as far as tone and rating. But he hopes to make the film "a little more violent" than Marvel's 2008 blockbuster, "but as much as you can push it with PG-13."

lol Brett Ratner you f*cking lier!!! the only reason he left Badrock out *AND I KNOW IT!* is because he doesn't want to add a CG character that would boost the budget just like Juggernaut. Expect them all to have different costumes and there powers to be seriously toned down with mostly talk and.....I don't even wanna go on lol.
