Gearhead

Valhalla Motion Pictures has picked up the rights to Arcana Comics' Gearhead. The series is about a young female mechanic who leaves the drag strip to team up with a group of rebels to fight the corrupt superheroes who govern the US. Gale Anne Hurd, who we all know as the producer behind such as the Terminator trilogy, Armageddon, The Punisher and The Incredible Hulk, will be producing the project. No writer or director has been officially announced just yet. Gearhead was created by Dennis Hopeless and Kevin Mellon and was first published in late 2006. Who will they cast as Gearhead?

I'm not sure what it was that interested Hurd so much in Gearhead, but it does seem like a pretty cool comic. Shelby Cooper lives just outside a world of spandex politicians and electric cars - but screw them and their world! She's a hot chick with a hotrod! She drives fast, talks trash, and hurts people with a big-ass wrench. What does any of that have to do with super powers? You can pick up the trade paperback on Amazon. This may not have a lot of buzz at the moment, but I'm sure once they cast the lead and find a director, it will get a lot of attention. Is Megan Fox too busy to take on another project?
