A futuristic green-haired sexbot-assassin who gains awareness and goes looking for her origins in 3-D? All Aphrodite IX needs is Brett Ratner to direct, and it may be the perfect Saturday night mindless multiplex movie.
The movie - adapted from Top Cow's 1996 comic of the same name - is being developed by Top Cow, Platinum Studios and Threshold Entertainment with a view to being an ongoing franchise. Threshold's Larry Kasanoff gives a hint as to what kind of movie we should be expecting:
This is just the kind of franchise we love: a visually stunning world, amazing effects, a great story and a hot, kick-ass babe in the lead... What could be better?
Suddenly, I'm imagining the Resident Evil series meets Dollhouse starring Painkiller Jane's Kristanna Loken. In 3-D. Which, to be honest, doesn't sound like the worst thing in the world...
