Fantastic Four star Michael B. Jordan is in talks to star in Blood Brothers, an adaptation of Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller's Dark Horse Comics series, according to TheWrap.
The film is set to be produced by MGM from a screenplay by Tropic Thunder's Etan Cohen.
“Our goal with Blood Brothers was to create a comic with the feel of a classic buddy action comedy, like Lethal Weapon or Rush Hour, but with two vampires as the heroes,” said Andrew Waller back when Dark Horse bought up the series in 2013. “It’s really a story about two regular guys, who just happen to be vampires. They’ve treated the last millennium like a thousand-year bender, but now find themselves having to save humanity just to keep the party going.”
The film is being described as an action comedy, as well. Here's the official description of the comic: Nick and Tree have seen everything together; they’ve smoked opium with Genghis Khan, had orgies in Michelangelo’s studio, even fronted a death metal band in the seventies. But after a millennium of friendship, these inseparable, immortal buddies are on the verge of going their separate ways. Terrible timing, as an apocalypse-obsessed vampire villain is plotting an end to humanity, and Nick and Tree are the only ones standing in his way. Can they put their baggage aside long enough to save the world?
Besides Fantastic Four, Jordan has done voice work for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and The Boondocks.
