According to the Hollywood Reporter, the SyFy channel has picked up the rights to Booster Gold and is planning to bring it to the small screen as a live action show.
The story will center on Booster Gold, a washed-up athlete from the future who travels back to the present in hopes of becoming the greatest super hero of all time. Instead of chasing criminals, however, his main priority is chasing fame and money. But Booster Gold discovers that being a hero takes more than just a megawatt smile, and that the future doesn’t happen without first protecting the present.
Fringe’s Andrew Kreisberg has been hired to write the pilot, with Greg Berlanti producing under the Warner Horizon Television banner. Both collaborated on Eli Stone for ABC and have worked on Warehouse 13 and Red Faction: Origins.
