The big-screen adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona's Marvel comic Runaways will begin filming next spring in Los Angeles. Its production moniker, "Small Faces," is a reference to the British band who had a hit single entitled "Runaway."
Last we heard about the movie adaptation of the amazing comic series, Runaways, was that director Peter Sollett would begin filming next January. But casting calls have raised a red flag with fans, who fear a repeat of Airbender's whitewashing.
Sounds like the Runaways comic might actually get immortalized on the big screen, since Marvel is finally looking at a director. The spawn-of-supervillains epic has the makings of a high-energy super-powered teen action flick, with an angsty John Hughes twist.
