Leonardo da Vinci – Action hero?

Posted by LiveFor on March 11, 2010

Warner Bros have got hold of a film called “Leonardo da Vinci and the Soldiers of Forever” from producer Adrian Askarieh, who is teaming with Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison.

THR have that news that the project re-imagines Da Vinci as a member of a secret society who falls headlong into a supernatural adventure that pits the man against Biblical demons in a story involving secret codes, lost civilizations, hidden fortresses and fallen angels. Sounds like it could be fun.

Askarieh, who is producing via his Prime Universe banner, came up with the original idea and wrote the treatment, with a search for a writer now under way.

In the wake of the worldwide success of “Sherlock Holmes,” Warners seems eager to make more projects involving a period setting, a historical figure and the fantastical. Last week, the studio picked up a pitch that has Francis Lawrence attached to direct a supernatural tale featuring explorer Marco Polo, and director Guy Ritchie on the Warren Ellis King Arthur project.

Who could play Leonardo?
