File this one under rumor for now, but word on the street is (and by street, I mean the highly accurate interwebs) that the feature film version of Danger Girl now has three very good-looking women attached to star. Latino Review reports (via tracking boards) that Kate Beckinsale, Milla Jovovich and Sofia Vergara are attached to the adaptation of the Wildstorm comic book series Danger Girl from J. Scott Campbell. Benderspink is apparently shopping the rights to the project, which is described as Kill Bill meets Raiders of the Lost Ark, with the team element of Mission: Impossible thrown in for good measure. Todd Lincoln (The Apparition) is supposedly attached to direct.
The casting seems a bit too “teenage boy’s fantasy” to be true, so I’m reluctant to report this as solid fact at the moment. Then again, it could also turn out to be spot-on (egg, meet face), but for now just take this with a grain of salt. When the Danger Girl film was first announced, producer Adrian Askarieh said that the film would be the anti-Charlie’s Angels and more in the vein of Batman Begins. Hit the jump to read the supposed logline as well as a brief synopsis of the comic.
“A beautiful adventuress joins forces with an all-female spy agency as they race around the world to recover a trio of powerful relics.”
Here’s the synopsis for Danger Girl: The Deluxe Edition comic
Danger Girl follows the story of renowned Archeologist and adventurer Abbey Chase as she is recruited by the super-secret spy organization, Danger Girl. Along with fellow operatives, Sydney Savage and Natalia Kasstle, Abbey was brought into Danger Girl by the enigmatic Deuce, a former British Secret Service agent who is the team leader. Their first mission together is to locate a series of mystical relics and keep them out of the hands of the Hammer Syndicate, a huge criminal network bent on world domination! [Amazon].
