Valiant Entertainment has been moving in this direction for a long time and along the way there have been lots of rumors, announced projects and disappointed fans. Now the fans can stop holding their breath as Valiant public relations has given official word that there has been money actually committed to create TV shows and movies based off the Valiant heroes.
There are supposedly several films in the plans, many of them being co-funded by major Hollywood studios. The first in the plans appears to be Bloodshot.
“Bloodshot is a former soldier with powers of regeneration and meta-morphing made possible through nanites injected into his blood. After having his memory wiped numerous times, Bloodshot is out to discover who he really is and get vengeance on those who did this to him. Bloodshot’s bloodstream contains a billion nanocomputers, enabling him to heal from injuries quickly, interface with technology, and shape shift his mass. However, his oxygen-starved brain has lost its memories.”
Other Valiant films already announced include Shadowman and Archer & Armstrong. We can also expect to hear further announcements at the San Diego Comic Con.
Personally, I would love to see them do something with Turok..
