Singer to make Age Of Heroes film

Bryan Singer is developing the comic-book movie Age Of Heroes.

The X-Men filmmaker is to produce the big-screen adaptation of the 90s comic series through his company, Bad Hat Harry Productions, reported The Tracking Board.

The film, which will be based on James Hudnall's novel Hell's Reward, will follow a group of misfits who have to band together to protect a fantasy land against monsters and arcane magic.

Alex Hollister will write the script for Age Of Heroes.

The original comics were discontinued and unfinished after six issues, but James revisited the world and characters with his novel, which is intended to start a new series.

James' comics series Harsh Realm, co-written with Alexandre Paquette and illustrated by John Ridgway, was loosely adapted into a short-lived TV series of the same name by X-Files creator Chris Carter.

Bryan is no stranger to comic book adaptations, as he is best known for his work on the X-Men franchise.

He returned to the director's chair in the fifth instalment, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and is on board to direct the 2016 follow-up, Apocalypse.
