Margot Robbie‘s company has optioned the rights from MGM to make a new Tank Girl movie. Created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, Martin took to Twitter with the news.
Just heard that Margot Robbie’s company have optioned rights from MGM to make a new Tank Girl movie – now several months into development. We haven’t been contacted by any of the parties involved with the project, so not sure if there will be any input from the original creators.
Martin and Hewlett created the character who first saw publication in 1988 in the debut issue of Deadline. She has seen series published by Dark Horse Comics and currently by Titan Comics.
The character came to screen in March 1995 in a film directed by Rachel Talalay and starring Lori Petty, Naomi Watts, Ice-T, and Malcolm McDowell. Petty played the title character. With a budget of $25 million, the film went on to earn $4.1 million domestically and about another $2 million internationally. The film was generally panned by critics.
BLOOM announced today that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will officially be reuniting on screen after 27 years as the legendary Ted “Theodore” Logan (Reeves) and Bill S. Preston Esq. (Winter) in the highly anticipated third installment of the Bill & Ted comedy, Bill & Ted Face the Music.Following Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have penned the script, with Dean Parisot confirmed to direct. Scott Kroopf will produce together with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an executive producer alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.
MGM owns the rights to the film and will release in the U.S. under their Orion Pictures banner. BLOOM is handling international sales, which commenced in Cannes this week. Endeavor Content negotiated the deal.
When we last met Bill and Ted they were time-traveling teenagers trying to pass history class and win the battle of the bands. Once prophesized to save the universe with their rock and roll, middle age and the responsibilities of family have caught up with these two best friends who have not yet fulfilled their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends, Bill and Ted find much, much more than just a song. The film is currently in pre-production.
