Fox’s planned movie reboot based on the Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill graphic novel series League of Extraordinary Gentlemen will be “female-centric,” producer John Davis told Collider

During the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour, Davis said he’d figured out how to make this movie work better than the first.  “Just by going back to the roots and making it authentic to what the fan base was really excited about. It’s female-centric, which I think is interesting. I love female characters, point-of-view characters in action movies. I thought Mad Max {Fury Road] was great. I think you can always find a fresh way of doing something and going back to the basics.”

The film reboot was announced in May (see “'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' Movie Reboot”), and it will be interesting to see how it can go "back to the basics" of the source material and be "female-centric" at the same time, since Mina Murray is the only female member of the original League. The more recent trilogy, which follows Captain Nemo’s daughter, Janni Dakkar, was published by Top Shelf, and is probably not part of the license (see “Final 'LOEG' Nemo Trilogy GN”).

DC Comics is releasing a Graphitti Designs Gallery Edition of O’Neill’s artwork from the first six-issue series in December (see “Preview: 'LOEG' Gallery Edition”).
