Warner Bros. has plans to bring the recently-launched Vertigo comic book series FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics to the big screen. Deadline reports that Justin Marks (who recently scripted the upcoming Jon Favreau-directed take on The Jungle Book) will adapt the ongoing series by Simon Oliver and Robbi Rodriguez.
Launched last year (and initially titled “Collider”), “FBP” is officially described as follows:
Wormholes in your kitchen. Gravity failures at school. Quantum tornadoes tearing through the midwest. As with all natural disasters, people do what they always do: They adapt and survive. And if things get really bad, the Federal Bureau of Physics (FBP) is only a call away.
“FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics” is the story of Adam Hardy: Young, brash and smart, he’s a rising star at the FBP, but when a gravity failure leads to the creation of an alternate dimension known as a “BubbleVerse,” Adam is sent on a rescue mission and finds his skills and abilities pushed to their limits when he discovers his partner has a different agenda…
David Goyer and Nellie Reed are attached to produce with Jon Berg overseeing for Warner Bros.
