They’re truly doing it
Video game diversifications continue to be the total rage, and now Duke Nukem will get to affix in. The movie rights to Duke Nukem have been obtained by Legendary Entertainment.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Legendary has rather a enchanting crew on board to receive the Duke Nukem project, too. Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg are reportedly on board.
Alongside Legendary Entertainment, Marla Studios may perhaps even be on to receive. Marla Studios used to be basically based by Murderer’s Creed (the movie) producer Jean-Julien Baronnet and specializes in video game diversifications. THR reports the look a creator is underway, and there’s no director attached right yet either.
There used to be a Duke Nukem movie project within the works no longer too blueprint abet, over at Paramount. The project even had wrestling celeb John Cena attached to it, nonetheless the movie reportedly stalled out.
The Duke is abet?
By all accounts, here’s some wild info. Duke Nukem may perhaps well merely have been a heavy-hitter of the arena shooter expertise, nonetheless the series has stalled out. The infamously catastrophic Duke Nukem Forever seemed uncover it irresistible had forever shut the lid on modern Duke Nukem games.
But no longer all video game heroes of the ’90s have vulnerable into obscurity. Lara Croft had her revival in every video game and movie receive, and Critical Sam has saved trucking alongside. 2016’s Doom used to be a supreme revitalization, nonetheless it indisputably also made Doomguy a family title again.
Does Duke Nukem mild have that allure? Both blueprint, Legendary Entertainment is deciding on the lawful personnel. The Cobra Kai is moderately dang factual, and I’d have faith these showrunners may perhaps well attain one thing attention-grabbing with Duke. To be appropriate, after re-visiting the earlier Cena info, I’m now picturing a Peacemaker-vogue uncover on Duke Nukem and pondering it’s going to also somehow work.
