Gad is producing the project, described as a subversive take on the superhero genre, with Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Lin Pictures. Evans is executive producing.
The sibling writing team of Aaron and Jordan Kandell are attached to write the script. Gad originated the idea and developed with the Kandells and Evans.
