“A Duke Nukem film is within the works, from the creators of Cobra Kai”
They’re actually doing it
Online game diversifications proceed to be all the trend, and now Duke Nukem will get to affix in. The film rights to Duke Nukem have been acquired by Legendary Leisure.
The Hollywood Reporter studies that Legendary has fairly an attention-grabbing crew on board to supply the Duke Nukem challenge, too. Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg are reportedly on board.
Alongside Legendary Leisure, Marla Studios will even be on to supply. Marla Studios was based by Murderer’s Creed (the film) producer Jean-Julien Baronnet and makes a speciality of online game diversifications. THR studies the seek for a author is underway, and there’s no director hooked up simply but both.
There was a Duke Nukem movie challenge within the works not too way back, over at Paramount. The challenge even had wrestling famous person John Cena hooked up to it, however the movie reportedly stalled out.
The Duke is again?
By all accounts, that is some wild information. Duke Nukem might have been a heavy-hitter of the sector shooter period, however the sequence has stalled out. The infamously catastrophic Duke Nukem Without end appeared prefer it had eternally shut the lid on new Duke Nukem video games.
However not all online game heroes of the ’90s have pale into obscurity. Lara Croft had her revival in each online game and film type, and Critical Sam has saved trucking alongside. 2016’s Doom was a superb revitalization, however it additionally made Doomguy a family title once more.
Does Duke Nukem nonetheless have that attraction? Both means, Legendary Leisure is selecting the correct staff. The Cobra Kai is fairly dang good, and I’d think about these showrunners may do one thing attention-grabbing with Duke. To be trustworthy, after re-visiting the outdated Cena information, I’m now picturing a Peacemaker-style tackle Duke Nukem and pondering it may someway work.
