Drew Pearce Hired To Write Runaways
Deadline reports that Drew Pearce has been hired by Marvel Studios to rewrite the Runaways script. He is best known for creating the British superhero comedy series No Heroics. I'm not sure how much Drew is going to rewrite or polish since the script has already been worked on by Runaways creator Brian K. Vaughan (Lost). Peter Sollett (Nick & Norah) is still set to direct but it doesn't seem that the film will start production anytime soon. Considering projects like Ant-Man, Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. could be bigger priorities.
