Danger Girl movie in development from Resident Evil producers
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the ’90s comic series Danger Girl will be attempting a leap to the big screen with Constantin Film of the Resident Evil series set to produce. They will develop the film alongside Jeremy Bolt’s Bolt Pictures and Adrian Askarieh’s Prime Universe Films, while also eyeing the potential for a TV series as a companion to the feature.
“Danger Girl is the perfect opportunity to create a team of grounded, relatable, and dangerous young female characters, but with humor and spectacular action,” Bolt told the outlet.
Created byJ. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell, Danger Girl follows the story of renowned Archeologist and adventurer Abbey Chase as she is recruited by a super-secret spy organization. Along with fellow operatives, Sydney Savage and Natalia Kasstle, Abbey receives her first mission: 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!
The original series ran for just seven issues, but Danger Girl has persisted in comics in various one-shots and mini-series, including bouts with Batman and G.I. Joe.
Danger Girl was previously adapted into a video game for the Sony PlayStation and was previously in development as a film with Todd Lincoln set to direct.
