Warner Bros. and DC Films are teaming with Chernin Entertainment for a movie adaptation of the popular comic book character Hourman, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Gavin James and Neil Widener will pen the adaptation based on Hourman characters published by comics giant DC, also the home of heroes such as Batman and Wonder Woman.
Hourman centers on a brilliant-yet-troubled pharmaceutical analyst who discovers that the visions that have plagued him since childhood are actually glimpses of tragic events occurring one hour in the future.
Determined to win back his ex-wife and son, he heroically prevents these tragedies from unfolding, finding both purpose and redemption along the way.
The Hourman project is Chernin’s first attempt at adapting a DC Comics property.
