Prophet film adaptation


"Studio 8 is hoping to build the next comic book franchise with Prophet.

The studio has acquired the rights to Prophet, a property Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld first introduced in 1992.

In the comics, John Prophet could be described as the anti-Captain America. He's a DNA-enhanced super soldier from the World War II era who awakens in our time after being put in cryogenic freeze for a future mission. Unfortunately, he was not supposed to wake until years down the road, making Prophet a fish out of water, spending his time in search of a mission that does not exist.

Liefeld, Adrian Askarieh and Brooklyn Weaver will produce the film, with John Hyde and Terissa Kelton also involved. John Graham and Guy Danella are overseeing for Studio 8.

Liefeld also notes it won't be a direct adaptation of any one story, just as none of the Deadpool movies reflect a specific comics plotline."

"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."


Deadpool was fun and all (well, the first one, at least) but the overtly saturated superhero cinematic market does not need more Liefeld.

It does not.
