A Chinese superhero...
Superhero Hype reports that Barry Josephson (Bones) has signed on with Magic Storm Entertainment to produce Stan Lee's Annihilator. The Chinese superhero was created by Lee and the film's script was written by Dan Gilroy (Real Steel).
Here's a synopsis: Annihilator tells the story of a young Chinese expatriate, Ming, who must choose between remaining in prison or enlist in a secret US super soldier program. The program uses targeted genetic enhancements from various animal species. Ming chooses to undergo this nearly fatal procedure and through his extreme resolve, gained as a result of his family's tradition of practicing Qijong and martial arts, he survives. Now, armed with remarkable abilities, he must confront a former rival with his own set of enhanced faculties. Our reluctant hero is forced not only to face his personal demons, but also to defeat the villain who will destroy everything that he knows and loves.
Eric Mika, CEO of Magic Storm Entertainment, said: "Barry is the perfect partner at every level to produce a film of this magnitude that targets a global market, including mainland China. Barry's talents combined with Dan Gilroy's explosive script makes Stan Lee's treatment extremely powerful and a cornerstone for a unique franchise."
