Fox Rebooting ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ With New Movie

Another day, another unnecessary reboot on the horizon.

20th Century Fox is rebooting its 2003 historical fantasy film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen with John Davis on board to produce through his Davis Entertainment banner.

Ira Napoliello and Matt Reilly are overseeing the remake, based on Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s graphic novel of the same name, centering on Victorian-era literary characters such as Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde teaming to fight a common enemy.

A TV series was in development in 2013 with Green Lantern writer Michael Green on board as showrunner and exec producer alongside Erwin Stoff. Fox made a put pilot commitment but the show was not ordered to series.

The feature film starred Sean Connery as Allan Quatermain; it was the thesp’s final live-action movie before he retired. The studio had planned for “League” to become a franchise but the worldwide gross reached only $180 million.

“The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” comic book series launched in 1999.
