Brett Ratner and his Ass Rat Entertainment has nabbed the feature film rights to a comic book property called The Unknowns, from Femme Fatales Comics.
The comic was created by Mark A. Altman (DOA: Dead Or Alive), Steve Kriozere (NCIS) and model/actress Monica Olsen (who the character is based off of. Yes, that is her pictured above.) Ratner is only set to produce the film at this point. As of right now there is no director that has been attached to it. Hopefully Ratner won't come on board and ruin a potentially good movie.
The story centers around Alexis Davenport, who while living a seemingly ordinary life discovers she was actually once the highly skilled and deadly leader of a mysterious team called The Unknowns and must learn the secret of why her memories were erased and by who.
I've never read this comic book so I don't know if it's any good or not. But I'm sure the majority of the male population wouldn't object to seeing a movie about a hot girl going out and kicking some ass.
Have you read the comic book? If so is it any good? Will this make for a good film?
Here is the official description of the comic:
What is Known…
Created under a still classified executive order from Richard Nixon, the original Unknowns were designed to support the war effort in Vietnam. The program was eventually disbanded under President Jimmy Carter and that was the end of the story. Or was it?
What is Unknown…
They are outsiders and except for a small group of people, no one knows of their existence. But one of the world’s best kept secrets is about to be exposed when one of their own, left for dead, returns to seek out the secret of her own identity.
Meet the beautiful, but deadly ALEXIS DAVENPORT (starring Monica Olsen as Alexis)as she discovers that nothing is what it appears to be and that she is at the heart of a global conspiracy which will shake the foundations of everything you think you know.
