The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen may be coming to at TV screen near you. If you recall, the property (which is based off of graphic novels of the same name) was first a movie led by Sean Connery. The movie however did not do that well. However, 20th Century Fox is trying to adapt the title to a TV format headed up by producer John Davis. He spoke with Collider and noted that the TV reboot will have a more “female-centric” view this time.
He stated: “Just by going back to the roots and making it authentic to what the fan base was really excited about. It’s female-centric, which I think is interesting. I love female characters, point-of-view characters in action movies. I thought Mad Max was great. I think you can always find a fresh way of doing something and going back to the basics. What is it that people love? What is it that made them love the property in the first place?”
He also went on to note that it’s their desire to show that the team “are rogues” and that “you can’t save the world with conventional people when unconventional things are happening.”
We’ll have to see when or how this adaptation goes if it gets picked up for series.
