The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Getting a Reboot at Fox
2003’s comic book adaptation of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen strayed pretty far away from its comic kin, but damn if it didn’t have a cool rendition of Mr. Hyde. According to The Tracking Board, 20th Century Fox and Davis Entertainment have decided to go back to the source (a novel idea), planning to reboot a potential franchise based on Alan Moore’s comic book series.
After an abandoned attempt to turn the property into a television series in 2013, 20th Century Fox is planning to give The League another try on the big screen with John Davis set to produce. Davis Entertainment’s Ira Napoliello and Fox’s VP of Production Matt Reilly are overseeing the project.
As the twentieth century approaches, there is a need for a new kind of champion – adventurers not bound by the chaste order that characterizes the stagnant Victorian Era. The enigmatic Campion Bond of British Intelligence has begun a recruiting mission, collecting a menagerie of individuals who can be of value to his superiors due to… activities that have forced them beyond the pale.
But as Allan Quatermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde, and Hawley Griffin, the Invisible Man, discover, British Intelligence has plans for them that go far beyond mere spying. And if they survive their first test against the devil doctor of Limehouse, they’ll have to battle an even stranger menace from the stars!
