Danger Girl has found its director.
Deadline reports Kick-Ass 2‘s Jeff Wadlow will helm the feature film adaptation of the comic book created by J. Scott Campbell and writer Andy Hartnell. Danger Girl centers on Abbey Chase, a treasure hunter and reluctant spy who who aids a secret organization in making precious antiquities safe from a criminal outfit known as The Hammer Syndicate. With its mix of adventure and spy thrills, it was hit comic book, spawning a poorly received video game.
The title was previously optioned by New Line, with director Stephen Norrington attached to direct. But that deal ultimately fell though. Adrian Askarieh’s Prime Universe Films eventually picked up the option and will produce the new project alongside Constantin Films, which picked up the project last year. The deal also included television rights, which may eventual spawn a second Danger Girl project.
Danger Girl is expected to go into production in 2020
