Is it wrong I think this is kind of a great idea?

[Warner Bros.] has picked up a treatment titled "Leonardo da Vinci and the Soldiers of Forever" from producer Adrian Askarieh, who is teaming with Vertigo's Roy Lee and Doug Davison.

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. Think "National Treasure" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" by way of "Clash of the Titans."

Leonardo and his Soldiers of Forever using primitive helicopters and the first tanks to kill some unholy demons and, hopefully, save Mona Lisa? I wish I had a complaint about this, but thus far everything seems to be on track. You may continue.

UPDATE: in the comments, Dongle makes a good point. The Tick nearly did this already. And it was pretty great. Thus, my opinion does not change.

.... .... .... Well, someone certainly played Assassin's Creed 2. (Da Vinci is basically your side kick in it!)

DIDNT THEY DO THIS IN THE TICK CARTOON?

Man, I don't care *who* had this idea. I wanna watch the heck out of it.

i am so fucking ready for this

Wow, the first openly gay Hollywood action adventure movie!

sounds like a "da vinci code" sequel... it's like they took everything dan brown wrote about him and made a movie out of it.

meant to say prequel.

wow... wait WHAT?!

so, i guess now that Harry Potter's coming to an end; Warner Bros. decides they need a new headlining franchise... "oh, OH I KNOWS!" says one executive eagerly "we should take an existing historical figure, and 're-imagine' him as a fictional action hero, 'Forever Solders Loving' kid of guy! We could even make it in his teen years, and tell the 'story that was never told, because it never should, of a Teenage/immortal/Emo vampire and Werewolf version of Leonardo Da vinci!"

"we'll call it 'Leonardo Da Vinci and the Soldiers of forever' teens will LOVE it! (we'll star Leonardo De caprio as the teenaged Leo... you know, 'cause of the name)"

don't say its not gonna happen... they're already planning sequels...

Fuck. No.

haha i shit in all of your mouths - fuck off and die

LOL

Sounds interesting, I guess!!
