Jason Patric Lands Lead in FX's Powers Pilot

Jason Patric (Sleepers) has been tapped as the male lead in the FX drama pilot Powers.

Based on the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, the project, written by Charles H. Eglee and to be directed by Michael Dinner, is a police procedural set in a world where superpowers are relatively common. It centers on two detectives — Christian Walker (Patric) and Deena Pilgrim (to be played by Lucy Punch, The Class) — in a Homicide department that deals with cases involving “powers” (people with superpowers).
