Paramount Pictures is ramping up to advance Image Comics's 2002 property, The Pro, according to Deadline. Bitches On A Boat scribe Zoe McCarthy is attached to pen a script with 3 Arts's own Erwin Stoff producing.
The film aims to put a comedic twist on the superhero genre with The Pro which centers on a prostitute who wakes up one day with superpowers and is asked to join the League Of Honor. The comic was created by Garth Ennis, Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti and launched in 2002, and is currently in its 8th run with Image and Paperfilms.
If Palmiotti’s name sounds familiar, it's also due to his 1996 graphic novel, Painkiller Jane, which as of last November is moving forward at Solipsist Films with actress Jessica Chastain starring and producing.

I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.

John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance is now available wherever movies are sold in the U.S. and Canada with other screenings pending. It's a film that otherwise garners caution for fans as a rebooted fanfare that nonetheless has actor and martial artist Alain Moussi leading the action vehicle next to the star of its original iteration, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme.
