Danger Girl, Constantin Film’s female-led action franchise, has found its writer, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Umair Aleem will write the script for Danger Girl, adapted from the 1990s comic book series by writer Andy Hartnell and artist J. Scott Campbell.
Aleem is an up-and-coming action writer, last year selling his script Kate from the 2017 Black List to Netflix. That script attracted attention from the producers behind the John Wick films, so Aleem surely has the skills.
A mix of Indiana Jones, James Bond, and Charlie’s Angels (wow, this comic sounds awesome!), Danger Girl follows Abbey Chase, an adventurer who gets recruited into a secret organization. Chase is sent on an adventure with operatives Sydney Savage and Natalie Kasstle to locate mystical objects, keeping them away from the evil Hammer Syndicate.
Okay… that does sound awesome. Totally getting the vibe of all three inspirations.
Danger Girl was first released as a seven issue series in 1998, with several follow-ups over the years including crossovers with Army of Darkness and G.I. Joe. There was even a Danger Girl video game on the Playstation in 2000.
Obviously, this project is in its earliest stages, so there is not director attached, and no one has been cast.
