Constantin's female-fronted action franchise hopeful “Danger Girl” has found its writer.
Rising action scribe Umair Aleem has been tapped to pen the script for the film, which was adapted from the 1990s comic book series created by artist J Scott Campbell and writer Andy Hartnell. Robert Kulzer of Constantin Film, Jeremy Bolt of Bolt Pictures, and Adrian Askarieh of Prime Universe Films are producing the feature.
“Danger Girl” follows the adventures of Abbey Chase, an adventurer who was reluctantly recruited into a secret organisation. Chase is then paired with operatives Sydney Savage and Natalia Kasstle on a globe-trotting adventure to locate a series of mystical objects and keep them out of the hands of the evil Hammer Syndicate.
The comic was a blend of Indiana Jones, James Bond and Charlie's Angels and an instant hit when it debuted in 1998 from Jim Lee's Wildstorm imprint.
In April 2010, “Hitman: Agent 47” producer Adrian Askarieh announced he was developing a film based on the comic with Todd Lincoln as director. In November 2017, Constantin Film acquired the rights to develop “Danger Girl” as both a film and potential TV series, in partnership with Askarieh's Prime Universe Films and Jeremy Bolt's Bolt Pictures.
Aleem last year sold action thriller “Kate” to Netflix. The project is being produced by Clubhouse Pictures' Bryan Unkeless (“I, Tonya”) and 87Eleven, the producers behind the “John Wick” movies. The script was also on the 2017 “Black List”.
