Fans of Brian K. Vaughan will be delighted to hear that he has signed a deal with Legendary Studios this month. While we don’t know many particulars yet, we can only hope we’re going to see some amazing stuff in the future.
The signed deal is due to last three years, where Legendary will be adapting Brian K. Vaughan’s creator-owned comics. They’ll also be executive producers for more original projects that will go straight to film and/or television. There’s the potential for them to expand further, but without too much news to go off of we’re best not to get our hopes too high—after all, we fans are already making out quite well in the deal.
Nick Pepper, the President of Legendary Studios, seemed thrilled by the deal, stating, “Through truly inspired storytelling, Brian has created immersive, compelling worlds that are devoured by fans worldwide.” That is an understatement, to say the least. He continued with, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with Brian to bring his visions and extraordinary library of work to the screen.”
Brian K. Vaughan
Brian K. Vaughan is an author of legendary proportions (no pun intended). Many of his series become instant hits, with a loyal fan base buying each issue as it releases. Other classics will forever hold a special space in our hearts.
The series that probably first comes to mind when many think of Brian K. Vaughan is Saga. This is the series he’s been currently working on that has been a smash hit. The series is currently in a year-long hiatus, leaving fans desperate for updates and news—though understandably the break is well-deserved by the creative team. Other popular series by the author include Marvel’s Runaways (which he eventually handed over to other authors), Paper Girls, Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, and Doctor Strange: The Oath.
Brian K. Vaughan is no stranger to working with screenplays. He assisted with the Hulu-owned Runaways series, as well as Under the Dome, Y: The Last Man (a short), Y (the latest attempt to get Y: The Last Man onto the screen), Lost, and a few others.
What series do you think will be getting adapted first? Are there are series you’re hoping, in particular, to see on screen?
