"League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" Rebooted

27 May 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

20th Century Fox and Davis Entertainment are planning a new film adaptation of Alan Moore's acclaimed historical fantasy comic series "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen".

The first volume of the original work is set in a steampunk Victorian London where literary characters are real. In the story Mina Murray, Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man and Dr. Jekyll team up to stop a war between two tyrannical villains (James Moriarty, Fu Manchu) for control of London.

The work was previously and very loosely adapted in 2003 into a feature that proved to be Sean Connery's final appearance in a live-action film. The hope was the film would launch a franchise, but reviews were bad and the film pulled in only $180 million worldwide.

An attempt was made to adapt the property into a TV series in 2013, but the show was not ordered to series. John Davis is on board »

Fox Plans ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ Film Reboot

27 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was a drag of a movie, especially as it was the live-action swan song for Sean Connery. Just because that film was a stinker, however, doesn’t mean that the Alan Moore-written comic series, featuring Victorian-era pulp and sci-fi characters such as Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll, and Mr. Hyde, isn’t […]

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is Being Rebooted

27 May 2015 4:33 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When 20th Century Fox released "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" in 2002, the goal was to launch a new big-budget franchise. But after spending $78 million on the film, it only grossed $179 million worldwide with a disappointing $66 million earned in Us. While the movie was considered a failure (it was also Sean Connery's last film role), Fox has announced that it will reboot the project in hopes of getting it right this time. John Davis (Chronicle) is producing. A director has yet to be hired. The original film was based on a comic book series by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, and features such literature characters as Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Mina Harker of Dracula. »

Sony Planning An "Invisible Man" Remake?

23 April 2015 4:49 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

H.G. Wells' "The Invisible Man" novella has seen several film and TV adaptations over the years ranging from the classic James Whale-directed 1933 film for Universal, to the BBC's quite faithful 1984 mini-series adaptation, to Paul Verhoeven's modern spin in 2000's "Hollow Man".

Today, The Tracking Board has posted a rumor saying that Sony Pictures is developing a new film adaptation of the classic story which Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick will produce.

The site also claims the new spin "will make the Invisible Man the villain of the film, with the audience following the hero that is tasked to hunt him down."

The project reportedly has no connection to Universal's upcoming remake of the 1933 film that's in development as part of their proposed Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe initiative which began with seeds sown in last year's "Dracula Untold". »

'Hotel Transylvania 2' Poster: Drac's Pack Is Back

26 March 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just two weeks after the first trailer debuted for Hotel Transylvania 2, Sony Pictures Animation has released a new poster, showing off the "Drac Pack." The poster features Dracula (Adam Sandler), his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez), Frank(enstein) (Kevin James), Murray the Mummy (Keegan Michael Key), Wayne the Werewolf (Steve Buscemi) and Griffin the Invisible Man (David Spade). Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania. Dracula's rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests.

But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn't showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny (Andy Samberg) - and in for a major cultural shock of her own - "Vampa" Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a "monster-in-training" boot camp.
