Rob Liefeld's BLOODSTRIKE Heading To The Big Screen
Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld is bringing short-lived 1990s comic book series, Bloodstrike, to the big screen with Adi Shankar's production company. Hit the jump for details on the planned adaptation as well as info on the plot.
Variety reports that Bloodstrike is being brought to the big screen from Adi Shankar's '1984 Private Defense Contractors' (he has previously co-financed The Grey, Machine Gun Preacher and the planned all-female riff on The Expendables). He will produce the film alongside Rob Liefeld and Brooklyn Weaver. Despite the fact that it lasted for only 23 issues during its initial run in the 90s, the series sold over 30 million copies. With the aim of launching a franchise, the site describes the project as focusing on, "a Bloodstrike unit consisting of a team of super-soldiers who have secretly been imbued with vampire blood -- making them an elite strike force feared by all enemies."
