Sony Has Faith in Valiant Heroine for New Movie


Variety and multiple sources reported on June 28 that Sony Pictures will develop Valiant Entertainment’s Faith as a feature film.

Escape Room writer Maria Melnik will write the screenplay based on the superhuman adventures of geeky teen Faith Herbert, which will be produced by Neal Moritz, Toby Jaffe and Dan Mintz. Sony previously announced that it is also developing Valiant’s Bloodshot as a movie.

The Faith feature film is part of a Valiant universe-wide movie production plan that began in 2015 when Sony and Valiant started developing a Bloodshot film which will begin filming in July 2018.

Faith follows millenial superhero Faith Herbert, codename Zephyr. A superhero with the ability to fly and bring others to her, she is part of a group of young psiots rebelling against Toyo Harada and the Harbinger Foundation. Faith made her debut to the Valiant Universe in January 1992 with writers Jim Shooter and David Lapham attached. For a list of tie in graphic novels from Valiant Entertainment, please see below.
