Gerard Way in talks

27 Oct

I refrained from posting this earlier because it looked rather speculative but the Spanish-language press picked up on NME‘s more thorough reporting, so I’ll indulge: Gerard Way’s (of My Chemical Romance fame) comic series The Umbrella Academy has been optioned by Universal. A script was offered to Alfonso Cuarón, which he rejected… but talks are ongoing and Way is willing to compromise on script changes to work with Cuarón. Comic information, rumour summary and a video interview from Spike TV Scream Awards can be viewed here.
