The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen may be getting a cinematic reboot

The Tracking Board are claiming this. So it could be a thing, or it could be total bull$#*T. But I’m going to talk about it because…I HAVE THINGS TO SAY!

Another day another reboot. I feel like less people will be upset about this compared to the whole Point Break fiasco, though. I should probably start off by saying that I really enjoy—to the point of loving—the original League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie from 2003. Now that you have a slightly firmer grasp of my taste in terrible movies, I’ll keep goi-ah, you stopped reading? No one’s here are they? That’s cool, I’ll just finish up anyway because…F*@k it.

I haven’t seen this movie in a solid 5 years or so, but I distinctly remember thinking that it wasn’t up to scratch when I watched it last. So yeah, it’s probably worth rebooting it. There really is some great stuff in the story that probably gets shrouded by the more ridiculous aspects of the film.

I’m curious who they’ll get to play Skinner. Jackie Earle Haley would be my pick. For some reason I always identified highly with Skinner. Maybe it was because I too feel invisible at times. Or, you know…because he’s kind of an asshole. I’ll let you draw your own conclusion on that one.

Man, feminists are going to have a field day with this title, though. Which is fine…I guess. Maybe it’s called for, or whatever.
