Rob Liefeld’s ‘Shrink’ Picked Up by Sony Pictures

‘The property centers on a psychiatrist whose patients are superheroes. Rob Liefeld’s Shrink is finding new life at Sony Pictures.

The studio has optioned the superhero property, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Shrink centers on Dr. Jessica Powers, a psychiatrist who helps superheroes process their complicated lives. Sony previously developed the property in the early 2000s with Jennifer Lopez attached to star, but the film never got off the ground. Shrink will be produced by Doug Belgrad’s 2.0 Pictures and Adam Fields. Liefeld is executive producing.

Liefeld is behind a number of familiar Marvel characters, including X-Men’s Deadpool, Cable and Domino. He left Marvel in 1992 to co-found Image Comics, where he launched creator-owned properties such as Extreme Universe.

Liefeld is set to unroll a return to X-Men comics Major X, a six-issue limited series that will publish twice monthly starting in April. Deadpool 2, which opened in May 2018, just overtook 2016’s Deadpool at the box office with $784 million globally.’
