Danger Girl, the action-spy comic created by J. Scott Campbell and And Hartnell, is being developed for film and television.
Deadline reports that German production company and distributor Constantin Film acquired the rights to the Wildstorm comic and will team with Bolt Pictures and Prime Universe Films to produce a planned feature film and subsequent television series.
“Looking at Danger Girl’s lead character Abbey Chase and her posse of thrill-seeking femme fatales, female empowerment and wish fulfillment have never been more fun,” Constantin's Robert Kulzer told the website. Jeremy Bolt of Bolt Pictures added, “Danger Girl is the perfect opportunity to create a team of grounded, relatable, and dangerous young female characters, but with humor and spectacular action.”
Debuting in 1996 from Image Comics' Wildstorm imprint, Danger Girl follows the daring adventures of secret agents Abbey Chase, Sydney Savage and Sonya Savage as they travel around the world on covert missions against the evil Hammer Empire. Danger Girl has switched publishers a few times, initially moving from Image to DC Comics, before ending up with IDW Publishing.
Martin Moszkowicz of Constantin Film will executive produce Danger Girl alongside Campbell and Hartnell.
