'Homeland's' Howard Gordon, 'Chronicle' Scribe Sell 'Superhero' Police Drama to Fox (Exclusive)

Max Landis will pen "Vigilant," a story about a girl who creates a vigilante persona to take on criminal elements of the city and its corrupt police department.

Homeland's Howard Gordon is continuing to have a busy development season.

Just days after selling a family adventure to Fox, the prolific producer is teaming with Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis for Vigilant, which has received a script plus penalty order at the network.

The project is described as a "superhero" origin story told through the unlikely point of view of a smart 20-year-old woman who happens to be a social outcast. After an honorable veteran detective is brutally coerced into working for the corrupt head of Internal Affairs, the detective's daughter plans her revenge by creating a fictional vigilante persona to take on the criminal elements within the police department and the city.

Landis created the idea and will pen the script and executive produce alongside 20th TV-based Gordon through his Teakwood Lane shingle. Teakwood head of television Hugh Fitzpatrick is on board as a co-executive producer.

Chronicle, starring Michael B. Jordan (Friday Night Lights), was released earlier this year and has grossed $126 million. Landis, repped by WME, Circle of Confusion and Behr & Abramson, is penning the script for a sequel.

For Gordon, Vigilant marks his fourth sale this development season and second at Fox. He also has a thriller with Josh Friedman as well as a legal drama set up at NBC as well as a drama set up at TNT. Gordon is repped by WME.
Sure, why not? Since Powers is really going nowhere fast... Given who's behind this, I think this should be very promising.
Nothing? Did you people not see Chronicle? :o

God, you guys are hard to please... :csad:
