Fox Orders ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ Pilot

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Fox has placed a pilot order for Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The small screen adaptation of the graphic novel will follow Moore’s Justice League inspired characters from the Victorian era.

Published back in 1999, the League follows the character Mina Murray, who is recruited by British Intelligence to assemble a team to protect the Empire. With the help of Captain Nemo, Murray enlists Allan Quatermain, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, to fight a common enemy.

If Fox orders the League to series, Michael Green (Green Lantern, Smallville) will serve as both the show’s writer and executive producer. Erwin Stoff (The Matrix, Kings) of 3 Arts is scheduled to serve as executive producer. Moore has previously seen several of his projects, ‘Watchmen’, ‘V for Vendetta’ and ‘League’, created for the big screen.

‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ was first published through Wildstorm/DC. The League was comprised of two six-issue limited series and a graphic novel with a third miniseries published through Top Shelf and Knockabout Comics. Casting news behind the upcoming show is sure to be on the way.
