The Umbrella Academy
As the studios dig deeper into the library of comicbooks that have yet to be adapted or acquired, Universal Pictures has taken advantage of their deal with Dark Horse Comics to adapt The Umbrella Academy.
Universal Joins The Umbrella Academy
Scribe Mark Bomback, who wrote the Disney remake Race to Witch Mountain, has been hired to adapt the comic. Premiering in 2007, The Umbrella Academy revolves around a disbanded group of seven superheroes who reunite after the death of their adoptive father, an alien disguised as a famous entrepreneur, and carry out his plan to save the world.
While we have grown accustomed to seeing the Marvel and DC logo before comicbook movies, expect more of Dark Horse. The publisher is responsible for properties such as Sin City, 300, The Mask and Hellboy. Universal released Hellboy II last year.
