Fox Plan League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Reboot

Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novel is getting another shot at a big screen adaptation it seems, with 20th Century Fox looking to rekindle the franchise after 2003’s lacklustre attempt.

Though no cast, writers or directors have been announced yet, Fox are currently searching for help to bring back the Victorian era supergroup which include Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde, the Invisible Man and Captain Nemo.

It’s extremely unlikely that any of the original cast will return, particularly as Sean Connery retired from acting due to his infamous unhappiness with the experience of making the first film. Indeed to this day LXG remains an embarrassing footnote on Connery’s impressive career as his disappointing final screen credit.

More news as we hear it but in the meantime, who would you like to see direct, write and star in the upcoming reboot?
