Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale to Star in ‘Danger Girl’ Film Adaptation?

UPDATE: The Playlist has reportedly contacted the actresses’ representatives and they have debunked this story as rumor, saying that none of them are attached to the project.

You can file this one under speculation for now, but word on the web is that Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale and Sofia Vergara are set to star as curvy super-heros in the forthcoming film adapation of the comic book series Danger Girl.

For those unfamiliar with the less-known animated work of J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell, Danger Girl follows the adventures of three salaciously illustrated female secret agents led by their mentor named Deuce (who wikipedia says resembles an aged Sean Connery).

Benderspink Productions (A History of Violence, The Hangover) is apparently shopping the rights to the project, which has been described as Kill Bill meets Raiders of the Lost Ark, with the team element of Mission: Impossible thrown in for good measure.

In addition to the Danger Girl rumor, there have been reports that Milla, who recently finished making a 2011 reboot of the classic film The Three Musketeers, is set to reprise her role as security officer Alice in a fifth installment of the Resident Evil sci-fi franchise.

Afterlife, the fourth movie in the popular film series loosely based upon the Capcom video games of the same name, was a box office hit, raking in over $236 million worldwide.
