A Danger Girl movie? Really? Whatever. Much like the comic itself, I can’t muster any feelings about Danger Girl, either as a comic or as a potential comic movie. It’s being produced by Adrian Askarieh (of the Kane & Lynch movie and the theoretical Hack/Slash movie adaptation), and FilmDrunk does a great job illustrating out this guy only speaks in Hollywood douchebag (apparently, every movie he makes is like something-meets-Raiders of the Lost Ark. Awesome), but I just want to show you how he describes Danger Girl to the L.A. Times:
I would describe it as “Kill Bill” meets “Raiders
of the Lost Ark” with the “team” element of “Mission:
Impossible.” I would say to the uninitiated that the book is a
smart, hip, fun and beautifully drawn love letter to the best
action/adventure movies of the last 30 years. It is the story of a lost
girl who, through this incredibly kick-ass adventure,
finds her destiny, comes of age and helps save the world. It is truly
an iconic property which for a while (before “Watchmen”
and “300? were turned into movies) was the best known
non-Marvel/DC comic book out there.
You know, if most people seriously compared Danger Girl to Watchmen or even 300, they would be considered insane and locked up; thank god this idiot’s in L.A., where they let those people be movie producers. Let me explain Danger Girl to anyone who doesn’t know what. It’s like
?There you go. A “beautifully drawn love letter” about “a lost
girl who” “finds her destiny” and “comes of age”? Not so much.
