Brett Ratner watch! He's doing another super hero movie...

Brett Ratner attached to direct 'Youngblood'. the movie. For those of you who've never read it. It's a dreadful X-Men rip off that features every bad comic book cliche in it's pages.


Ratner seems to be attached to every film going. Fortunately none of them seem to get out of development Hell. I kinda hope he does this one so i can see the train wreck of a film it will spawn.

The Indian media conglom has acquired Rob Liefeld’s iconic graphic novel “Youngblood” for Brett Ratner to direct.

Reliance inked a development deal with Ratner’s shingle Rat Entertainment, as well as Julia Roberts’ Red Om Films, during the Berlin film fest.

The company paid mid six figures for the rights to “Youngblood,” about a superhero team sanctioned and overseen by the U.S. government.

Project is the first to emanate from the Indian media conglom’s nine development pacts with Hollywood talent.

“Most of the great graphic novels are gone, and ‘Youngblood’ is one of the few comicbooks left with tentpole potential,” Ratner told Daily Variety. “It was a real personal passion project for me, and a lot of people wanted (‘Youngblood’), but the amazing thing about the guys at Reliance is the speed with which they’re able to move.”

By all accounts Ratner's quite a personality, a bit of a party animal and well-liked in entertainment circles. That will get you a long way in most walks of life! I've never personally thought he was a bad director, just undistinguished.
