Leonardo Da Vinci to Become Next "Sherlock Holmes"-Type Franchise?Submit Comment
Universal Pictures has picked up Jonny Kurzman's "Leonardo" spec script in order to turn it into an action-adventure centered on the young Leonardo Da Vinci. Kurzman is mostly known for his work on children's television.

Da Vinci is the painter of the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper was also a mathematician, architect, sculptor, writer, scientist and inventor -- including concepts for a helicopter, a tank, solar power, a calculator and the double hull.

The story will focus on da Vinci's quest to stop Renaissance Europe from returning to the Dark Ages. Lawrence Gordon (Watchmen, Hellboy, Die Hard, Predator) is set to produce.

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective created by Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Holmes is famous for his astute logical reasoning, his ability to take almost any disguise, and his use of forensic science skills to solve difficult cases.

Mmmm apart from both being extremely intelligent I see no other reason why they are both similar. I'm sure he had loads of fictional fights with mysterious priests as well...

Seriously? Have they no respect for the dead? Not only Hollywood already tarnished the classic movies (by making reboots/remakes)and now, Hollywood want to tarnished the image of one of the most legendary artist this planet ever had.

i Could see this making money, think about it.. making a movie that would tie into all the legends that goes with him, like the extra person in the last supper or the hidden stuff in the mona lisa!

Only if they get Leonardo from the Ninja Turtles to play the lead role.

Leo running around in Renaissance Europe? Rad.

"Da Vinci is the painter of the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper was also a mathematician, architect, sculptor, writer, scientist and inventor -- including concepts for a helicopter, a tank, solar power, a calculator and the double hull." --- sounds like a bit of a show-off.

Then they might as well do a movie on Benjamin Franklin since he also invented many things
