It’s rush hour for Brett Ratner, whose company Rat Entertainment has signed deals with Indian media company Reliance Big Entertainment for two fast-tracked projects. Ratner will direct Youngblood, an adaptation of Rob Liefeld’s graphic novel about a superhero team sanctioned and overseen by the U.S. government. “It was a real personal passion project for me,” Ratner said. He’ll also produce a project called Infinity, based on the French graphic novel Fly Wires. Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard) will direct.
