Infinity War helmers Joe and Anthony Russo are developing a TV adaptation of the Valiant Entertainment comic, Quantum and Woody at TBS.
Deadline are reporting that Ant-Man and the Wasp’s Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari are currently writing the pilot for the series, which is still in relatively early days.
Quantum and Woody is one of the Valiant Entertainment comics that are owned by DMG Entertainment, which remains one of the key superhero publishing houses not currently tied to a major studio – although it is said that DMG are beginning to take meetings for a bigger deal.
Originally published in 1997, Quantum and Woody draws inspiration from the characters in White Men Can’t Jump, played by Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes. The comic’s titular characters are adoptive brothers who are brought together, after years of estrangement, by the somewhat mysterious death of their father. In the course of investigating the events surrounding their father’s death, the duo are accidentally imbued powers.
Though it was originally co-created by Christopher Priest and illustrator Mark Bright, Valiant began publishing a re-imagined version of the characters, written by James Asmus with art from Tom Fowler in 2013. Joel McHale has been rumoured to star in the project, which would see him reteam with the frequent Community directors and executive producers, however, this has not been confirmed.
