The Devil’s Commandos – Thomas Jane faces down Satan’s Army

I mentioned this in a Random a few days ago but now I’ve got the poster and a bit more info from ShockTillYouDrop.
Screenwriter Todd Farmer (Jason X, My Bloody Valentine 3D, Messengers 2: The Scarecrow) is developing Devil’s Commandos for Thomas Jane (The Mist, Mutant Chronicles, The Punisher, Give ’em Hell Malone) to star.
“Devil’s Commandos is a Tim Bradstreet (artist on The Punisher, Hellblazer) story,” said Farmer “Turns out, not only can Timmy draw, his noodle churns out some rockin’ ideas. Who knew? But I told him if I wrote the thing he wouldn’t get any credit. He’d end up as a footnote somewhere. So I suggested he write it with me. Tom will star and direct in 3-D to follow his Dark Country debut. Plan is to start after Tom wraps Hung.”
Farmer and Jane previously collaborated in 2007 when the former wrote the comic book series Alien Pig Farm 3000. “Devil’s Commandos is about a WWII commando unit sent on a rescue mission. Pretty straight forward. Except for the part where hell opens up and they have to fight Satan’s army.”
Sounds like an excellent concept for a film. Fingers crossed it ends up better than Mutant Chronicles.
