Created by J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell (both of whom serve as executive producers to the film adaptation), the trio of secret agents – Abbey Chase, Sydney Savage and Sonya Savage – first appeared in Danger Girl No.1 in 1998. Clearly inspired by such pop culture icons as Charlie’s Angels, James Bond and Indiana Jones, the series followed the saucy, deadly, and scantily-clad agents, as they are led by former British SIS Agent Deuce and top Oxford graduate, Silicon Valerie (really?), a teenage genius in adventures with tongue-in-cheek humor and high-octane action.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary last year, the series has gone through many pit stops with publishers (including crossovers). The original seven-issue series was published by Wildstorm, which at the time was under Image Comics, through the Cliffhanger imprint. Danger Girl then made its way to Dynamite Entertainment before landing with IDW.

Umair Aleem has penned the script for the potential movie, while Wadlow, in addition to being in the director’s chair, will come in to do rewrites. Wadlow has also made contributions to the Vin Diesel headed sci-fi flick, Bloodshot (Valiant Comics) for Sony and an early iteration of Masters of the Universe. Bolt Pictures and Prime Universe Films are in partnership with Constantin to produce the female–centric spy film.
