"No matter where you go, there you are."


Tim Miller is working on an Alien Legion film adaptation for Warner Bros.

Some great news for me and many other Alien Legion comic book fans. It looks like we will be getting a live action film adaptation the comic that was created by Carl Potts, Alan Zelenetz, and Frank Cirocco for Marvel Comics’s Epic Comics imprint in 1983. It features a military unit, Force Nomad, similar to the French Foreign Legion. Sarigar (the guy with the snake-like tail in the image above) is a standout, in a series full of fantastic characters.

Honestly, do yourself a favour and try and read some of the comics and graphic novels. They are so good.

THR have the news that Warner Bros. have picked up the rights with an aim to build a new space opera franchise.

Tim Miller (Deadpool, Terminator: Dark Fate) has been attached to direct.

It is a great comic book with many interesting characters who do not all get along. There is huge potential for a great film, that could lead onto more. It would also work extremely well as a TV show. There is a slight concern that, as it is Warner Bros. they could just end up doing a Batgirl with it and hide it away for tax purposes, but there is a long way to go before we have to worry about that.

Don Murphy and Susan Montford of Angry Films will produce along with Aaron Ryder.

There have been a few attempts to turn Alien Legion into a film. In 1995, Potts wrote a screenplay for an Alien Legion television adaptation, which was optioned in 1996 by MGM. Bob Gale (screenwriter of Back to the Future) wrote the pilot script. After MGM stopped development of the series, the property was then optioned by Dimension Films, but the series was cancelled due to management changes. Jerry Bruckheimer set up the property at Disney later in the 2000s and had scripts written by David Benioff (Game of Thrones), and 3:10 to Yuma’s Derek Haas and Michael Brandt. Eventually the rights reverted to Potts.
