Jonny Quest

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.

Hitman Opening Cinematic

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.

Red Brick Road Image

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.”

Danger GirlA 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.

Kane & Lynch

In a recent interview with GameDaily, Hollywood producer Adrian Askarieh talked video game movies in great detail. On the list, he spoke on big projects like Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, Hitman 2, and Just Cause — all of which have movies in the works.

From the very second that a Kane & Lynch movie was announced, superstar Bruce Willis was rumored to be up for one of the starring roles. It’s been a long time since these rumors started swirling, but staying nice and chaos free, Askarieh confirmed in this interview that Willis is indeed attached and confirmed for the movie, and that he will be playing Kane (the one on the left) of the duo.

He also confirmed that the movie will be directed by Simon Crane, who is mostly known for his stunt work, but who has also done a lot of Second Unit Directing and Assistant Directing. It will finally begin production in March of 2010, which is still a long ways off, but considering this thing has been coming for years now, it’s good to have an actual date. Lionsgate will be handling the distribution, and Millennium is financing it.

Hitman

In an interview with GameDaily, producer Adrian Askarieh talked about the Hitman series, including both the movie sequel, Hitman 2, and even more importantly, the extra-long-awaited video game, Hitman 5.

As for the movie, it looks like they’re still waiting for a script at the moment, but are hoping to start filming by the middle of next year. The question was asked if star Timothy Olyphant would be returning now that he has a new TV show (Damages) going. Askarieh explained that they would definitely want him back, but it all balances on timing. As we all know, Olyphant would have to go bald as bald can be again in order to return to the role of Agent 47, and as simple as that sounds, it could have a big effect on his show and bring complications to the table. Askarieh was also asked if the rumor that it would involve 47 losing everything and having to get it back was true, to which he replied “That’s a part of it, yes, but that’s all I’m going to say on that.”
