The Wall Street Journal reports that Sony Pictures is developing a live-action adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's comic book series Powers. It will be an hour-long Playstation original series.
The comic was written by Bendis and drawn by Oeming. It follows detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim who investigate superhero-related homicides. It was launched in 2004 through Image Comics and is published by Marvel's imprint Icon.
A TV version was planned years ago with Kevin Falls (creator of Journeyman) writing a pilot. The pilot was never released but it starred Lucy Punch and Jason Patric as Pilgrim and Walker.
