Shrink, a story about a female psychiatrist with superheroes for clients, will be produced at Sony Pictures. The original IP was created by Rob Liefeld, co-creator of Deadpool. The project will have the same tone as the Deadpool films, often relying on wise-cracks and sarcasm.
Liefeld, along with writer Fabian Nicieza, created and developed one of the highest-grossing IPs in Fox’s history. In fact, Deadpool has the two top opening-weekend performances by R-rated films in Hollywood history.
In Shrink, psychiatrist Dr. Jessica Powers is a strong, smart, and intuitive doctor who eases the minds of some of the most complicated superheroes.
We’ll see if Jessica Powers can match the bar set by Wade Wilson.
