Marc Guggenheim Scripting Marvel's 'Jackpot' Movie For Sony Pictures

Recommended Posts

Sony Pictures has tapped Marc Guggenheim to write the script for Jackpot, a feature about a crime fighting mom in the comics.  This comes after the recent news of the studio hiring veteran TV director S.J. Clarkson to develop the first Marvel female-centric movie.

Quote

 

Jackpot is a superheroine with exceptional strength, and her history in the comics is a complicated one. First incarnation was Sara Ehret, a scientist, who, while pregnant, is doing gene therapy research and is exposed to “Lot 777,” a virus that rewrote the DNA in her cells. Her baby is born healthy but she realizes in addition to being a new mom she has superhuman strength after she is forced to save her family.

Eventually, she tired of the crime fighting burden and hands the suit to Alana Jobson, an ambitious pal who takes over the character but must ingest a Mutant Growth Hormone to live up to Jackpot’s superhuman abilities. Long story short, she is killed when teaming with Spider-Man to track down the villain Menace and is killed in action. A guilt-ridden Ehret returns to the job, keeping her identity secret as she raises a family while fighting crime.

A strange choice for a movie. Also this could be a way of introducing Mary Jane

Maybe, though I doubt you could make Jackpot's story a comedy

She can't because she's still working directly for Disney, but I'd rather see Guggenheim's wife, Tara Butters, write this movie.
Also that synopsis from Deadline is heavy.  Poor Alana Jobson gets killed twice.
