Jeff Wadlow will direct the “Danger Girl” comic book adaptation for Constantin Film, the company announced on Wednesday.
The action/adventure feature is based on the comic book series created by J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell about an all-female-team of super-spy adventurers.
“Danger Girl” is a priority for Constantin, which plans to begin filming by 2020. Wadlow, who is currently directing Sony’s upcoming “Fantasy Island,” will do additional rewrites on the script. Umair Aleem wrote the initial drafts.
“Danger Girl,” beginning with a 1998 limited series and continuing through several subsequent miniseries and one-shots, follows the adventures of Abbey Chase, a reluctant recruit into the eponymous all-female secret spy organization. Paired with operatives Sydney Savage, Natalia Kasstle and “Silicon Val,” she embarks on a globe-trotting adventure to locate a series of objects with destructive power and keep them out of the hands of the evil Hammer Syndicate.
“Danger Girl” was adapted as a video game for Sony PlayStation 2000.
Robert Kulzer of Constantin Film, Jeremy Bolt of JB Pictures, and Adrian Askarieh of Prime Universe Films are producing. Executive Producers are Constantin Film’s Martin Moszkowicz, along with J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell.
Wadlow was repped on the deal by Artists First, UTA, and attorney David Matlof.
