The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is getting another adaptation.

Originally a comics series, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen landed a feature adaptation by 20th Century Fox back in 2003. Now, 20th Century plans to adapt a new version of the film for streaming platform Hulu.

The original comics series by writer Alan Moore and artist Kevin O’Neill took fans into an alternate Victorian Age world, where a special team worked together on a secret mission. The League itself was composed of famous fantasy, sci-fi, and adventure characters, including Captain Nemo and Dorian Gray. The original film adaptation starred Sean Connery, Naseeruddin Shah, Peta Wilson, Tony Curran, Stuart Townsend, Shane West, Jason Flemyng, and Richard Roxburgh.

As for the new feature adaptation of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the screenplay will come from Justin Haythe. Haythe’s previous credits include Revolutionary Road, The Lone Ranger, and Red Sparrow. 

Don Murphy, who produced the first League movie, will also produce this upcoming adaptation. His producing partner Susan Montford will join him, as well as Erwin Stoff via 3 Arts Entertainment.

Since the 2003 feature, 20th Century has attempted several other reboots and reimaginings. However, none of these other projects ever got off the ground. Notably, the initial adaptation of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen strayed from its source material. Reportedly, this upcoming feature will make more of an effort to stick to its comic roots.
