While DC Comics and Warner Bros. bide their time in making films about their topline comic book characters, a number of lesser-known entities are making their way to the screen.
One of the more eagerly awaited of these properties is “The Losers.”
The plot — which comprises the first six issues of the Vertigo comic book series by Andy Diggle and Jock — is as follows: After being betrayed and left for dead, members of a CIA black ops team root out those who targeted them for assassination.
It’s pretty standard fare as far as plots go, but more encouraging is the cast they have assembled, including Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Idris Elba, Chris Evans, Columbus Short, Oscar Jaenada, Jason Patric and Zoe Saldana.
Entertainment Weekly was able to snare these two new shots of the cast on set in beautiful Puerto Rico.
Directed by Sylvain White, “The Losers” will take on the box office starting April 9, 2010.
