Your Newest Comic Movie Is Vertigo's Hit Federal Bureau Of Physics

A major favorite at io9 HQ, Vertigo's FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics will make the leap from page to screen courtesy of Warner Bros., naturally. It's about the titular government agency, which deals in quantum disasters in a world where physics can change just like the weather.

But there's some good news and bad news here. First the bad: At the moment, the script is being written by Justin Marks, who wrote Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li, which was completely godawful. On the other hand, he also wrote the script Jon Favreau's upcoming Jungle Book movie, Disney's reboot of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and co-wrote the abandoned Green Arrow/Supermax movie with David Goyer (who will also co-produce FBP), so maybe Chun Li was just a fluke?

If nothing else, I think FBP might work better as a movie than as a comic, because we'll be able to actually see the wonky physics in action. Cross your fingers, I guess.
