Danger Girl Comic Getting The Hollywood Treatment...

I read a hell of a lot of comics but I admit right now that I've never read Danger Girl, nor do I know a single thing about the character or the story. However news hit the net the other day that not only is Hollywood producer Adrian Askarieh trying to bring both Kane & Lynch and Hack/Slash to the big screen but now he's aiming to bring Danger Girl to the cinema-going masses too.

Danger Girl is an American comic book series created by J. Scott Campbell (awesome artist) and Andy Hartnell. The comic features a group of busty, scantily-clad secret agents led by their mentor, Deuce. The series is a spoof of James Bond-style spy/action stories, with the Danger Girls being a send-up of the Bond girls. Unlike the Bond girls, however, the Danger Girls (Abbey Chase, Sydney Savage, JC and Silicon Valerie) are the stars of the series and kick serious ass wherever they go.

Askarieh stated in a recent interview "We are just getting into it. Our collective hope is to have a big announcement in time for this year’s Comic Con International. As you know, these things always take a bit longer than one anticipates."

So be on the look out for more Danger Girl related news after July 2010 and lets hope that someone other than Megan Fox is tipped for the lead role of Abbey Chase!
