Hack/Slash

After tackling Voltron, Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li, and He-Man, screenwriter Justin Marks will move on to adapt the comicbook Hack/Slash. The series revolves around Cassie Hack, a young woman who travels the country and takes on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way. Hack/Slash marks another high profile project for Justin Marks, which should say quite a bit about his talent, but then again most of his new projects haven't hit theaters yet. This was actually announced previously (around Comic-Con last year), but it seems Marks has been brought on to re-write the script.

Rogue Pictures is adapting with Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter, of 2007's Hitman, and upcoming flicks Spy Hunter, Kane and Lynch, and Jonny Quest, producing. Newcomer Todd Lincoln has been set to direct. The film is being described as an action movie that will be heavy on comedy and horror, which sounds about right considering the story. The focus of the series is on a horror victim, Cassie, who strikes back at the monsters, known as "slashers", with Vlad, a freakish man who frequently wears a gas mask. You can pick up a copy over at Amazon.com.

At Comic-Con last year, STYD reported that Megan Fox "is incredibly interested" in the role of Cassie. That's definitely the perfect choice and I truly hope she gets on board.

I'm not sure why, but I've heard of Hack/Slash enough (or maybe seen it on the show floor at comic conventions) to believe it might lend itself to a good film adaptation, but I could be wrong. Unfortunately I can never get The Covenant out of my mind when I think about lesser-known comic projects like this, and that's definitely not a good thing. Hopefully Marks keeps the cheese out and write a new script that Lincoln can turn into something enjoyable. We'll definitely be keeping our eye on this project as it develops.

Yea there's a He-Man movie! We wrote about it last May, check it out: https://www.firstshowing.net/2007/05/24/by-the-power-of-grayskull-he-man-movie-confirmed/ As for Hack/Slash... looking at those comic covers is killing me (in a good, sexy, can't contain my drooling way). If Megan Fox gets cast and they make it a sexy on-the-edge R-rated movie like the comics portray... Oh man, that would be incredible. Maybe even guilty pleasure material, if not actually up there on my top list anyway! That's why I'm excited for this! Ohhh the possibilities... 🙂
