Warner Brothers has picked up a treatment titled Leonardo da Vinci and the Soldiers of Forever from producer Adrian Askarieh (who is partnering with Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison).
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. Think “National Treasure” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” by way of “Clash of the Titans.”
Askarieh is producing the project through his Prime Universe banner and came up with the original idea and wrote the treatment. A search for a writer is now under way.
