Guy Ritchie Back On Sgt. Rock?
Ritchie has been attached to the film in the past, but now news is leaking that Warners is not only interested, but moving plans forward once the new Sherlock Holmes is finished.
Sgt. Frank Rock is an infantry non-commissioned officer in the DC Comics Universe. His story takes place during World War II. He was created by Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert. Sgt. Rock is eagle-eyed shot, and has the ability to hurl grenades with precision. Rock is a stealth fighter with his hands, employing boxing and street like style. He appears as extraordinary strenth and healing abilities. He has survived numerous gunshots, and shrapnel from grenades.
Who should play Sgt. Rock? That is what I want to know.
Ritchie was initially linked to the Sgt Rock adaptation a few years back but eventually gave way to Francis Lawrence, who wanted to take the film away from the comics WWII setting and give it a futuristic spin, instead. But Twitch has learned that Warner Brothers and producer Joel Silver have now put Sgt Rock back in Ritchie's court and are lining it up as his next film.
Nothing official announced yet, but Ritchie is already said to be supervising the current screenplay draft.
