A fresh attempt is being made to bring The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen to the screen – more details here.

The first big budget attempt to bring Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen to the big screen didn’t go to plan. Notwithstanding the fact that the movie was a box office failure, it led to Sean Connery retiring from acting off the back of it. Furthermore, director Stephen Norrington would back away from helming other movies.

It’s taken nearly two decades, but now there’s finally a plan to try again in adapting the comics for the screen. This time, Justin Haythe is in charge of penning the screenplay. He’s previously penned scripts for Revolutionary Road, Red Sparrow and The Lone Ranger.

Whether this take on The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen arrives on the big screen or not is unclear. It’s being developed by Disney and Hulu, and it sounds like it’ll follow a similar path to the Predator movie Prey, that’s arriving direct on streaming in August.

The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen has a long way to go yet, and we don’t know who’s directing nor who’s going to star. We just know it’s happening, and we’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
