Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist helmer in talks to direct Runaways

Marvel Studios is negotiating with Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist helmer Peter Sollett to direct Runaways.

The film is based on the comic book series co-created by Brian K. Vaughan and artist Adrian Alphona and follows a group of teenagers who find that some family secrets are bigger than others when they discover their parents are actually super-villains.

Running away from their homes, the teens band together and begin a journey of discovery, both of their parents’ origins and of their own inherited powers, while trying to make up for the evil done by their folks.

The movie is expected to hit cinemas in 2012.
