With a new comic-book adaptation announced on a seemingly weekly basis these days, up next to get the adap treatment is Rob Liefeld’s Shrink.
Deadline broke the news, with Sony Pictures picking the right rights to the property.
Premise-wise, Shrink centres on psychiatrist Dr. Jessica Powers. A strong and smart doctor, Jessica specialises in smoothing the psyches of superheroes.
Shrink began life as a humour-laced webcomic back in 2001. With Jennifer Lopez lined up to tackle the role of Doc Powers, Columbia and Sony had plans to adapt Shrink back in 2005, before those plans ultimately failed to come to fruition. Now though, Sony is again moving forward with Shrink.
Doug Belgrad’s 2.0 Pictures and Adam Fields will be producing Shrink for Sony, with Liefeld to serve as executive producer.
As ever, expect more on Shrink as we get it.
