FX hasn’t pulled the plug on the Sony TV-produced “Powers” as originally reported.
Variety reports that the cabler’s adaptation of the comic book series has been a long and arduous process, but the network said it isn’t writing the project off.
A pilot was shot last year but rejected by FX topper John Landgraf, who asked scribe Charles “Chick” Eglee for a rewrite. The network had plans to do a complete reshoot of the pilot — complete with a completely new cast — but those plans have not gone forward and there is no immediate start date to put it back in front of the camera, says the site.
Jason Patric and Lucy Punch, who co-stars in the new Fox sitcom “Ben and Kate,” were in the original cast. Others in the ensemble were Charles S. Dutton, Titus Welliver and Carly Foulkes.
The comic, from writers Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, “centers on a pair of cops who investigate crimes perpetrated by those with superhuman qualities.“
