Umair Aleem To Write Danger Girl Feature Adaptation

by Erik Amaya

 

The feature film version of Danger Girl continues to move forward.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Umair Aleem will adapt the comic book series for producers Robert Kulzer, Jeremy Bolt, and Adrian Askarieh. The title was optioned by Constantin Films back in November.
Based on the comic book by J. Scott Campbell and writer Andy Hartnell, Danger Girl centers on Abbey Chase, a treasure hunter and reluctant spy who who aids a secret organization in making precious antiquities safe from a criminal outfit known as The Hammer Syndicate. With its mix of adventure and spy thrills, it was hit comic book, spawning a poorly received video game.
The title was previously optioned by New Line, with director Stephen Norrington attached to direct. But that deal ultimately fell though. Askarieh’s Prime Universe Films eventually picked up the option and will produce the project alongside Constantin Films. With Aleem taking scripting duties, it appears Constantin is ready to get Danger Girl to the screen as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, no release date has been announced.
