Danger Girl isn’t a particularly well-known comic book series, but it certainly has its fans. Sort of an exploitationesque James Bond-lite trio of female super spies, it’s schlocky as hell, but it could make for an interesting movie, sort of a more risque Charlies Angels. Also? Hopefully not as terrible. Anyway, the J. Campbell Scott comic book (published by Wildstorm) was picked up by Benderspink Management and Production, and they’re currently shopping for a studio to finance the picture. In case you’re curious, here’s what the main characters look like in the comic:
Not exactly subtle, eh? Anyway, Latino Review is reporting that not only is the script currently being shopped, but that three actresses are already attached, and they’re doozies: Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale, and… Sofia Vergara. Beckinsale and Jovovich are logical choices — they’re already neck-deep in their own action franchises (Underworld and Resident Evil, respectively), but Vergara is a surprising (though very pleasing) pick.
Frankly, it’s almost like a bit of dream casting, which makes me very cautious about buying into it right away, but still — if it’s true, it’s like a teenage fantasy come to life. I’d say that Agent Bedhead’s post yesterday was rather timely, no?
Oh, who the fuck am I kidding — it’s any adult male’s fantasy come to life.
Just to make your day:
Oh, you’re quite welcome.
