The League of Extrodinary Gentlemen was a very memorable film, for all the wrong reasons, as per usual upon release the film was blasted by Alan Moore the creator of the original graphic novel, the film bombed at the box office and led to the retirement of screen legend Sean Connery, who had chosen the film while passing on portraying the Architech in the Matrix movies.

Variety reports that John Davis and Davis Entertainment are producing, with Ira Napoliello and Matt Reilly overseeing the remake at Fox. This new film is once again based on Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s comics, but we don’t know how faithful this one will be. I hesitate to say they couldn’t be much less faithful than the 2003 film, but that might be misinterpreted as a dare.

No writer has been revealed, so this could still be in pretty early stages.
