Three Actresses Attached To A Danger Girl Movie?

One of the easiest-to-transition-from-comics-to-film properties is getting some new movement.

I can totally see this standing up next to the concessions stand.

So Latino Review’s got the scoop that a DANGER GIRL movie’s getting put together with the attachment of no less than three lovely ladies - - Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale and MODERN FAMILY’s Sofia Vergara. It’s been a spell since the comic’s been out, but I figured an adaptation would get going sooner or later (unless you count Danger Girl Vs Army of Darkness). Years before Ultimate Nick Fury started looking suspiciously like Samuel L. Jackson, you had this comic that essentially starred Liz Hurley, Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton. If the “Bond girls getting the spotlight” angle wasn’t accessible enough, you'd imagine that having some real actors “appearing” in a comic would make it all-but-impossible for producers and execs to not be able to picture it as a movie.

Either way, the breakaway title of Wildstorm’s long-dissolved Cliffhanger line is getting some new traction a new "elevator pitch" to go with that movement. It’s being described as KILL BILL meeting RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK by way of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE. Given the tongue-in-cheek tone and the fact that it stars a trio of butt-kicking babes, I’d figure that CHARLIE’S ANGELS would be a more useful title for comparison. But maybe that’s less en vogue now there's this new TV show coming out?

I'm sure we've got some DG diehards in this community. How does this new settle with you maniacs?

Sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Hope it happens with some hot babes and plenty of action!

I wouldn't care less.

How good of an artist to I have to be that I don't have to give a dam about anatomy anymore? 
That leg...

Posted by dondasch

Meh.  Not really interested.

Posted by Burnstar1230

Out of those three, I would choose Kate.  Milla hasn't done anything recognizable outside of her husband's eyes since Fifth Element and Sofia Vergara, although hot...just.no.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

The Charlie's Angels comparison is just what I would use.  Does it mean I wouldn't give such a possible movie a chance? Of course not.  Could be a worthy effort and then again it might not. Just have to wait and see.

Sounds good to me. I've been thinking about reading some of the comics myself

Great Caesar's ghost, I can't believe they're doing this!  They'd better keep the spoof element though. Finally, an all-female answer to the Austin Powers films!  
 
I can guess who's who: Jovovich is Abbey, Beckinsale is Sydney, and Vegara is Natalia. I really hope Will Ferrell is the villain Abbey encounters early on, Donavin Conrad.
 
I actually fancasted a live action and animated movie for Danger Girl on comicbookmovie.com. Here it is if anyone's interested:

I would so see this, both for the plot and the visuals.

I am sorry, but all these actresses are way to old to play these characters. The actresses who play these characters need to be 25 - 30 not 35 - 40.

I would be in favor of this movie, especially if it was played like an austin powers type spoof of the spy/treasure hunter genre. What would put this movie over the top though would be Sean Connary playing Deuce.
 
Also I always thought Johnny Barracuda looked more like a young Bruce Campbell rather then Timothy Dalton.

I am interested in the idea of a Danger Girl being made into a movie, I bought the original Danger Girl series way back when and have got the other mini's that have come out over the years. If the rumors are true I am down with Beckinsale is Sydney, and Vegara is Natalia, but I could do without Jovovich. Truth be told though I agree with ASLAN186 that the actresses need to be a bit younger in their mid 20's and there are tons of young attractive actresses to fill the roles. Who knows it could be a good platform to launch careers from. Also someone else mentioned they thought Will Ferrell would be good casting as Donavin Conrad. I could not agree more. The Danger Girl comic had a good blend of action and comedy Ferrell as Donavin in the opening scene could set a movie off to a great start. Here's hoping.

while it sounds like a no brainer... i'm cautiously optimistic. There's been tons of stuff that would sound like easy transitions... and then someone... somewhere... manages to screw it up.

Never heard of her..................

I can dig it   :D 
 
they're a little upwards on the age brackets, but I can live with that - but I see it as more of a light-hearted parody than a serious action thing

Posted by EdwardWindsor

hell yeah, Babes plus body count equals massive win.

Posted by jcbart

Milla and Kate in the same action packed action girl movie? FUCK YEAH

Posted by GT-Man

I think the actress are hot and perfect
Posted by Sobe Cin


nice. But that casting seems wrong. I like them. However Abbey Chase should not in a million years be played by Milla Jovavich or Kate Beckinsale. Silicon Valerie is not Sophia Vergara. However Sydney Savage could very well be portrayed by Kate Beckinsale.

 

So here's my cast (Using what I will from their casting choices)

 

Abby Chase .......              Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah from Chuck)

Sydney Savage .....          Kate Beckinsale  
Silicon Valerie.....             Allison Mack or Renee Felice Smith (From NCIS: Los Angeles 
Natalie Kassle.....            Milla Jovavich 
Johnny Baracuda.....        David Boreanaz 
Deuce......                           Ron Perlman (Only because Sean Connery would never do the role.)
Secret Agent Zero.....       Ray Park (he excels in the minor roles) 
Major Maxim..........           Arnold Vosloo or Karl Roden 
 
Can't think of any more.

Agree, I love Kate and Sofia but they are a little old....

Milla Jovovich?  Didn't she already ruin Resident Evil for the gamers?
 
Sofia Vergara?  What's she gonna do, disguise her thick Spanish accent as Russian?
 
Kate Beckingsale is good.

Edited by Darkmount1

@lorex
That was me in regards to the Ferrell thing. 
 
@Sobe Cin

Connery is a MUST for Deuce--the guy was modeled after him!!! 
 
And I think Mark Wahlberg would make a good Johnny Barracuda, along with Emma Stone in as Valerie. 
 
I also have the feeling that Beckinsale IS Sydney and Vegara is Natalia Kassle.

Posted by FadeToBlackBolt

Sofia Vergara? Sold. The other two could be Bill Murray and Anthony Hopkins in drag and it'd still be awesome if Sofia Vergara was in it.

Posted by TheMess1428

I say no to Milla Jovovich because I'm sick of Hollywood making her the go-to girl when it comes to female action heroes.
