More Names Sign on for Heroes: Origins

by at . Comments

Kevin Smith isn't the only film scribe on board for Heroes: Origins.

Word is circulating that both Eli Roth (Hostel) and Michael Dougherty (Superman Returns, X-Men 2) are preparing to write and/or direct episodes.

Lots of Heroes

The six-episode Heroes: Origins will launch in the spring, after the main show's sophomore run has ended. It will focus on characters not previously seen on the series. Viewers will then vote on which new Heroes they'd like to see join the mother ship for Season 3.
