harbinger01.jpgVariety is reporting this morning that Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to Harbinger from Valiant Comics. The live-action adaptation may be directed by Brett Ratner.

Created by Jim Shooter, the “Harbinger” comicbook series became a hit when published in the 1990s. Harbingers are humans with powers that can be unlocked by “omega” harbingers. Teenager Pete Stanchek finds himself on a collision course with an older “omega” who used his gifts to become an evil industrialist.

Ratner was last seen directing Rush Hour 3, and has at least three other films he is working on before Harbinger.
