A film adaptation of Jonny Quest has been in the work for quite some time. Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron were poised to star in the film with Johnson playing Race Bannon and Efron as the titular character. That project fell through. Then Robert Rodriguez was attached to direct, using a script from Terry Rossio, in 2015.
However, now it looks like he is no longer involved as The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay has been named the new director. More on the report, below.
The Hitman video game franchise is beloved among gamers. Attempts to adapt the games, which follow the assassin known as Agent 47, have not gone so well.
Now there’s new hopes for fans of the games who dream of seeing a faithful live-action adaptation. But it’s not a movie this time. Hulu and Fox 21 Television Studios are developing a live-action TV series based on the games from Derek Kolstad, the writer behind the John Wick movies.
A potential new TV series is on the way, and it’s one that fans of L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz may (or may not) be interested in hearing about.
Warner Horizon is developing the project, which is titled Red Brick Road, with hopes of it becoming a full series sometime down the road.
Details are very scarce at the moment, but unlike Disney’s upcoming prequel directed by Sam Raimi, Oz the Great and Powerful, this potential TV series would be a continuation of the Oz story presented in the same fashion as HBO’s Game of Thrones, with “politics, intrigue, and violence.”
Did you know they were making a movie based on the video game Just Cause? If not, surprise!
Producers Adrian Askarieh and Eric Eisner have reached out to Bryan Edward Hill to rewrite the script for the movie, which is currently titled Just Cause: Scorpion Rising. Michael Ross (Touristas) wrote the first draft of the script, which is being developed Askarieh and Eisner’s Prime Universe Productions and Double E Pictures before being shopped out to potential studios.
A big-screen adaptation of the Wildstorm comic book series Danger Girl is in the works with Todd Lincoln directing, according to a Hero Complex interview with its producer Adrian Askarieh.
Askarieh, who’s currently producing Relativity’s film adaptation of Devil’s Due Publishing’s Hack/Slash, described the planned Danger Girl movie as “Kill Bill meets Raiders of the Lost Ark with the “team” element of Mission: Impossible.”
The Danger Girl comic book series debuted in 1998 from creators J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell, and has Campbell’s now distinctive buxom hot babe artwork. The series follows Abbey Chase, a treasure-hunting demolitions expert who joins the top-secret Danger Girl organization in their action adventures. All the ladies are well-endowed and gorgeous, typically wearing tight, revealing clothing, but the difference between these babes and those on Baywatch is that the Danger Girls are highly skilled and intelligent, not to mention lethal.
