'Danger Girl' Movie Finds Its Writer
Constantin's female-fronted action franchise hopeful Danger Girl has found its writer.
Rising action scribe Umair Aleem has been tapped to pen the script for Danger Girl, which was adapted from the 1990s comic book series created by artist J. Scott Campbell and writer Andy Hartnell.
Robert Kulzer of Constantin Film, Jeremy Bolt of Bolt Pictures, and Adrian Askarieh of Prime Universe Films are producing the feature.
Danger Girl follows the adventures of Abbey Chase, an adventurer who was reluctantly recruited into a secret organization. Chase is then paired with operatives Sydney Savage and Natalia Kasstle on a globe-trotting adventure to locate a series of mystical objects and keep them out of the hands of the evil Hammer Syndicate.
The comic was a blend of Indiana Jones, James Bond and Charlie's Angels and an instant hit when it debuted in 1998 from Jim Lee's Wildstorm imprint.
Constantin's Martin Moszkowicz will executive produce along with Campbell and Hartnell.
Aleem last year sold action thriller Kate to Netflix. The project is being produced by Clubhouse Pictures' Bryan Unkeless (I, Tonya) and 87Eleven, the producers behind the John Wick movies. The script was also on the 2017 Black List.
He is repped by Verve, Madhouse Entertainment, and Felker Toczek.
