Leifeld Talks YOUNGBLOOD Movie

We took a couple of swipes at the annoucement of the 'Youngblood' movie yesterday. The film has Brett Ratner putting Rob Liefeld's 1990s creation into live action film. But Newsarama checked in with the ever-resiliant Liefeld himself to get his take on the development effort.

Liefeld is, understandably, happy about the deal. He told Newsarama that the film could have a budget in the realm of as much as $150 million and unnamed screenwriters have already finished a script.

"I've been intimately involved from the beginning," he explained. "My pitch was derived from a Youngblood screenplay I wrote. Last winter we got the ball rolling, this spring we auditioned writers, and this summer we hammered out the script. I haven't been able to speak about this for months but we've been moving this movie along for the last 12 months. As a producer on the film, Brett has asked me to stay very involved and we talk about Youngblood all the time."

The comics creator also has lots of enthusiastic things to say about Rattner and his work. Click through for the complete interview.

I hope that is a joke about Keri Russell being Wonder Woman.

Hobbs, keri russel is doing the voice of wonder woman for the animated movie.

I have looked very hard at the Nite Owl cans, and I think it might be Chock Full of Nuts coffe.

Never really read Youngblood I think I have a few issues of it in my comic book archives but never read them and I did have the Badrock action figure as well.Even though I never read the book I did know who someone of the characters were and I always thought Shaft looked like Shatterstar to me.Chapel was always a badass to me as well it was nice to see him in The Spawn cartoon series.Youngblood could be a good comic book movie,but when Ratner is involved I have my doubts but I think it will be decent cause he's not directing.

You know for this being the shortest month of the year it sure is taking its sweet ass time to end cause damn it I want to see Watchmen.

Saw the Fallen toy on Superherohype and the Fallen does look good and looks like some of us including myself were right that he had that Anubis Egyptian type look.Looking forward to seeing the new Transformers trailer when I see the new Jason film friday.I'm still hoping Megatron will be in it even though Bay said he isn't.
