JOEL MCHALE 'In Talks' For VALIANT's QUANTUM & WOODY
Joel McHale is in talks to play Woody Henderson in a live-action TV adaptation of Valiant Entertainment's Quantum & Woody, reports The Wrap. Avengers: Infinity War's directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo are overseeing the project, with Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari writing the pilot and pencilled in as showrunners.
McHale worked previously with the Russos on NBC's Community.
Valiant has yet to secure a broadcast channel to air Quantum & Woody, and no timetable for filming or a release has been given.
Quantum and Woody is a comic book series co-created by writer Christopher Priest and illustrator Mark Bright. Editor Fabian Nicieza called Priest because he wanted a buddy super-hero book similar to Power Man and Iron Fist.
