The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen heading for TV screens.

the_league_of_extraordinary_gentlemen_1280x1024-600x480In a move that will no doubt dismay fans everywhere Fox has plans for a TV show based on Alan Moore’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

The acclaimed series from Alan Moore and Kevin O’ Neil which features numerous famous literary figures banding together to face a mysterious threat was adapted into a film in 2003. Which was promptly regarded as a travesty by Moore’s fans due to it’s complete disregard for the tone and characters of the source material.

Michael Green (Green Lantern, Kings, The River, Heroes, Smallville) will serve as executive producer/showrunner for 20th Century Fox, with Erwin Stoff also executive producing.

 It goes without saying that neither Moore nor O’Neill is involved.
