Bryan Singer developing Age Of Heroes

Off the back of his latest X-Men success, Bryan Singer adds Age Of Heroes to his slate...

With his next year or two set to be dominated by bringing X-Men: Apocalypse to the big screen, Bryan Singer is nonetheless building on the success of this summer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past with a new project or two.

One of them is Age Of Heroes, based on the 90s comic series by James Hudnall. It followed a bunch of misfit characters in a land that's ruled over by gods. When said gods disappear, this unlikely bunch has the job of protecting that land from the magic and monsters that are suddenly allowed to roam without restriction.

Hudnall released a new novel based on Age Of Heroes last year too, and now The Tracking Board reports that Singer has snapped up the film rights, through his Bad Hat Harry company. Alex Hollister has been hired to pen the screenplay for the film. It's unclear as of yet whether Singer will direct as well as produce.

More on the project as we hear more.

Huh? I thought he was going down for alleged kiddie fiddling? (albeit one over the age of consent)

It's a civil suit so if he is found guilty, he'll pay compensation to the victim. It's not a criminal trial so there will be no jail time.

Nope I believe at this time Singer has presented evidence that he was not present where the alleged assault took place (in Hawaii) according to the alleged victims lawsuit.

You are referring to the second accuser, I was referring to the current third accuser - and at the moment they are just accusations

Ah I see.
