Warner Bros to Turn Leonardo da Vinci into Indiana Jones

Posted: March 11th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Warner Bros to Turn Leonardo da Vinci into Indiana JonesSubmit Comment
Warner Bros has picked up a treatment titled "Leonardo da Vinci and the Soldiers of Forever" in order to turn the famous painter (Mona Lisa, The Last Supper), inventor, engineer, architect and mathematician into an Indiana Jones-type action-adventure hero.

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.

In the wake of the worldwide success of "Sherlock Holmes," Warners seems eager to make more projects involving a period setting and a historical figure. Last week, the studio picked up a pitch that has Francis Lawrence attached to direct a supernatural tale featuring explorer Marco Polo, and it's back in business with "Holmes" director Guy Ritchie on a King Arthur project.

Sounds dumb. Why not just adapt it the way his life was.

This is retarded. The dude is one of the world's greatest minds, but we can't make a movie about him unless it involves biblical demons.

Holmes is a fictional character... from fiction. You can over exaggerate his life because its imaginary. Da Vinci is real and people are going to think its stupid that Hollywood even attempts this crap. Unless it's meant to be hokey and fun then it will flop. Or if you advertise it right the consumers will see anything.

Im sure a similar take on this was in Assassins Creed 2.

f*ck YES

and RGB, that's exactly what I was thinking.

when whoever makes an assassin's creed movie starts to make one, they should put altair in like, the opening credits montage, because there is no f*cking story in the first game.

What's next ? Salvador Dali as Doc Brown ? Andy Warhol as Austin Powers ? Pollack as a UFC fighter ?

This is how the world in "Idiocracy" is going to come true.

Don't know why, but I read "Leonardo Di Caprio" and almost freaked out.

@Max: LOL! Amelia Earhart as Lara Croft.
@i3u7n5: So true

Next thing you know they'll want to cast a female love interest and make DaVinci heterosexual.

@ Ricky.... Great idea on the assasssins creed part. They might as well buy filming rights to the game to pull this sh*t off

You can say what you want about graphics and sh*t but Assasin's Creed is BORING. You go somewhere, you sneak in, you kill the guy, you run. And Again. And Again until the credits roll.

"Leonardo da Vinci and the Soldiers of Forever"

"a supernatural tale featuring explorer Marco Polo"

- While you're at it, why not make it all in 3D? (sigh)

The 1st 3 movies will be great then on the 4th they'll have ole Leonardo finding aliens in the South American jungle.

This sounds sick! I do the understand the hate, everyone was happy to see an Abe Lincoln vampire slayer movie. This makes more sense.

Sounds great to me. They used him in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen books as a member of the Renaissance-era League. He was somewhat of an adventurer. But this is Hollywood, so they'll probably give him a lady love interest, which would be retarded considering he was fond of young men.

but hey, I've always wanted to see his flying machine in action

The only way I can see a project like this working(including the Marco Polo pitch), would be if it was used in a manner similar to Alan Moore's graphic novel series, 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen'.
Then again, maybe not, as most of us know what a hatchet job Hollywood made of that adaption.

What the f*ck! Why is my post edited. I feel I payed some funny stuff but WP edited it out. Is it a crime to make fun of COC and dandy? But if there is any crime commited it's f*ckin vindandy stealing rangers avatar

@Peter Parker: I'm sure they are considering to make those films in 3D as we speak...

Damn Hollywood...
