Still in the early stages, Warner Bros. is ramping up production of Sleeper, a noir superhero comic by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.  Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Jennifer Todd are producing, with Shawn Ryan and David Wiener scripting.

In the world of Sleeper, individuals are spontaneously developing superpowers.  Holden Carver can absorb pain and pass it on to others.  He is sent to infiltrate a criminal organization for the government and gets caught between love and loyalty.

Still in the early stages of development, Sleeper has no director or actors attached to the project yet.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
