Marvel’s Runaways is set to begin filming in March 2011. Production Weekly tweets that shooting will take place in Los Angeles, which is where Brian K. Vaughan’s comic is set. The series centers on a group of teenagers who go on the run when they discover that their parents are supervillains. While on the lam, they each learn they’ve inherited particular gifts and abilities.
Interestingly, PW tweets that the movie is called “The Runaways (aka “Small Faces”). If Marvel is choosing to rename the project, it’s likely because they want to avoid confusion with the music biopic starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning that came out earlier this year. However, I don’t want to believe that Marvel would provide a title as terrible as “Small Faces” to one of their movies.
