Bryan Singer Developing Freedom Formula
Producing another comic book adaptation

25 July 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: Variety

It was announced earlier this week that Bryan Singer would be producing Capeshooters, based on a comic book about two paparazzi who specialises in snapping superheroes. Now Singer's added another comic-book adaptation to his slate.

The Superman Returns director will be producing Freedom Formula, based on a five-issue comic by Edmund Shern. Freedom Formula is described by Variety as "a futuristic Top Gun" with racers battling each other while wearing exo-suits, rather than using planes. One genetically engineered racer discovers that his bloodline has the power to change society. Which all really sounds absolutely nothing like Top Gun.

There's no indication of who might direct, or if Singer might consider taking the reins himself.

What would Keyser Soze say?
Dark Knight aside (purely because it's Chris Nolan, who I love) I am getting sick of superheroes. I watched Usual Suspects again the other day and compared to Superman Returns it feels fresh, compelling and (to use a dirty word) original! Please, Mr. Singer, put down the cape and the action figures and let me see Valkyrie! You are worth so much more than this. More
