More News as Sgt. Rock Movie Moves Fast Forward
Movie will not be set in WWII...
Producer Akiva Goldman who is connected to 4 upcoming comic book movies--Jonah Hex, Lobo, The Loosers, and Swamp Thing--is now connected to a 5th film based on a comic book: DC's Sgt. Rock.
He's joining Joel Silver who has been trying for decades to bring Sgt. Rock to the silver screen.
Guy Ritchie was set to write and direct this flick but he's moved on to direct Lobo, so the job of directing is going to Francis Lawrence of I Am Legend/em> and Chad St. John (The Days Before) is to write the script.
Fans will be interested in noting that Sgt. Rock and Easy Co. will not be fighting the Nazis in WWII. The movie will apparently be set in the future!
