Rogue pictures is planning another lame-sounding comic book movie called Hack/Slash.
Comicbook, created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, revolves around Cassie Hack, a young woman who travels the country and takes on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way. The actioner will be heavy on comedy and horror. [Variety]
The film will be directed by Todd Lincoln and scripted by Justin Marks, who’s on a roll lately. Though none of his movies have been made yet, he’s also been hired to write Voltron: Defenders of the Universe, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Supermax (a Green Arrow movie), and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.
I’m sure this guy’s a real talent and all those movies sound like really great ideas. My only concern is that he stays true to the Green Arrow character and his quiver of boxing-glove, glue-trap, and net arrows. It’d be a shame if he tried to modernize him, and we ended up with something silly, like an eye-poke arrow, or an arrow with a boot on it. I mean, where’s the drama, man?
Though I think a rap-metal arrow is something to consider. You could fire it into a crowd and the bodies would hit the floor.
