Kate Beckinsale, Sofia Vergara and Milla Jovovich Join 'Danger Girl'?
In what seems like a fanboy's glorious dream, quite a sexy cast might be coming together for an adaptation of the J. Scott Campbell comic book series Danger Girl. Keep in mind that this should only be taken as rumor for the time being, but Latino Review has early word from the tracking boards that Benderspink is currently shopping around the rights to an adaptation of the comic with Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) and Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family") all attached to star in a project described as Kill Bill meets Raiders of the Lost Ark with the ensemble team element of Mission Impossible.
The simple logline reads like this: A beautiful adventuress joins forces with an all-female spy agency as they race around the world to recover a trio of powerful relics. The first issue of the series is said to follow renowned Archeologist and adventurer Abbey Chase as she is recruited by the super-secret spy organization, Danger Girl. Along with fellow operatives, Sydney Savage and Natalia Kasstle, Abbey was brought into Danger Girl by the enigmatic Deuce, a former British Secret Service agent who is the team leader. Their first mission together is to locate a series of mystical relics and keep them out of the hands of the Hammer Syndicate, a huge criminal network bent on world domination. Casting seems a little too ideal for a project like this, but maybe this is the real deal. Stay tuned.
Update: We received an email/tweet tip a few days later from The Playlist confirming that, unfortunately, none of this casting is true. "WME reps trio of actresses, not attached." It sounds like this casting was indeed too good to be true, and it was just an early rumor from the tracking boards that didn't pan out. No worries, we can hope with time this project develops and actually nabs a cast as kick ass as this.
