Fox Developing ‘The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ TV Pilot! by Derek Kraneveldt

Briefly: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a fantastic property that could make a phenomenal movie or TV series if put in the right hands. Could those hands belong to Michael Greene and Fox?

TVLine has revealed that Fox has just purchased the rights to produce a ‘Put Pilot’ based on The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. This means that we’re extremely likely to see this come to light, as if a ‘Put Pilot’ is not aired, the network suffers a major penalty.

Michael Greene (Heroes, Smallville) will write and produce the pilot, which is still without a cast or director.

According to TVLine, the official logline for the series reads: “A drama series based on Alan Moore’s critically and commercially successful graphic novel series about a group of Victorian-age literary characters, including Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, who team up to fight a common enemy.”

Over ten years has passed since the terrible film adaptation of Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s first released to theatres. Do you think that enough time has gone by for people to forget about the film, or will people avoid this based on the name alone? The books are obviously held in very high regard, how do you think a series could turn out?

We’ll share more details as soon as they come in, but be sure to share your thoughts below!

    The movie was a batch of egregious trash; eg, a sub that submerges in a Venetian canal and pops up later in the arctic. The Venetian canals are about 10 feet deep at the most ( I read a mystery series set there, about a Venetian cop, and written by a person who’s lived there, or very nearby, for decades). Sloppy, stupid, peurile, and absurd. Any time you perpetrate an idiocy like this, you yank half your audience out of your story thinking, “HUH? You can drop a huge sub down a shallow Venetian canal and somehow go from ocean to ocean by traveling under the solid roots of the continents?” Story = obliterated. Dumb move, and only one of way too many to mention. Piece of crap, full of lazy, dimwit “bright ideas” on the level of really, really, really bad comic books. Gods save us from a TV series of this drek!
