Max Landis Developing 'Superhero' Police Drama VIGILANT

Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis is teaming up with Homeland writer and producer Howard Gordon to bring us a new superhero police drama called Vigilant.

The project is being developed for Fox, and THR describes the project as a "superhero origin story told through the unlikely point of view of a smart 20-year-old woman who happens to be a social outcast. After an honorable veteran detective is brutally coerced into working for the corrupt head of Internal Affairs, the detectives daughter plans her revenge by creating a fictional vigilante persona to take on the criminal elements within the police department and the city."

Landis took to his twitter account to clarify that this is going to be more than just a superhero show saying,

No spoilers, but calling #vigilant a "super hero show" is a lot like calling Taxi Driver a pre-cursor to Spider-Man 3.

Calling #vigilant a superhero show is like saying Luther was inspired by Judge Dredd

This could be a fun series, it'll be cool to see how it turns out! What do you think about this new project Landis is developing? Do you like the concept?
