Netflix has picked up the rights to Super-Normal, a subversive take on the superhero genre with Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley, and Luke Evans.
Gad is set to produce the project, with Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Lin Pictures, and Evans as executive producer. The sibling team of Aaron and Jordan Kandell are attached to write the screenplay, and Gad is said to have originated the idea and developed it alongside the Kandells and Evans.
Recently, Gad has appeared on screen alongside Ridley in Murder on the Orient Express, and served as LeFou to Evans’ Gaston in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast.
Lin has been producer on IT, both of the Sherlock Holmes films, on all three Lego movies at Warner Bros. as well as Netflix’s recent Death Note adaptation.
