In a reported seven figure deal, Rob Liefeld's Extreme Universe is off to Hollywood, thanks to Graham King and Fundamental Films. King has partnered with Weed Road's Akiva Goldsman, who previously optioned Liefeld's Avengelyne.

The Extreme Universe covers nine comic books, encompassing more than 100 characters that include Brigade, Bloodstrike, Cybrid, Lethal, Re-Gex, Bloodwulf, Battlestone, Baboom, and Nitro-Gen. Absent from the option are Youngblood, Glory, and Supreme. Luckily, other Liefeld creations included are Bloodpool, Bloodstrike, and Bloodblood.

Fundamental Films chairman Mark Gao said, "Rob Liefeld's unique characters are in great hands with Graham and Akiva." He then added, "Lord knows it has to be hands because Rob can't draw feet for shit."
