WB puts Marks on 'Suicide' watch


Warner Bros. and Justin Marks are committed to suicide.

The studio has tapped the scribe to adapt DC Comics' property "Suicide Squad" as a feature film. Dan Lin and his studio-based Lin Pictures are on board as producers.

Created in the 1960s, the Squad was reconceived in the 1980s as a team of supervillains given one last shot at redemption by the government by accomplishing missions that will most likely kill them.

Warners is working from the latter concept.

Steven Gilchrist is co-producing. Jon Berg is overseeing for Warners. Gregory Noveck is overseeing for DC.

Marks is repped by WMA and Madhouse Entertainment. (partialdiff)
