Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Motion Pictures, Platinum Studios and Top Cow Productions have attached Ryuhei Kitamura to direct and Holly Brix to write Magdalena.
Plot details remain under wraps, however what is known is the basic premise of the Top Cow comic of the same name, about the protector of the Catholic Church who is descended from Christ’s bloodline and wields the Spear Of Destiny as her weapon of choice.
As previously announced Jenna Dewan and Luke Goss are attached to star.
Kitamura previously directed Midnight Meat Train for Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment, as well as such Japanese films as Godzilla: Final Wars, Love Death, Sky High and Azumi.
Brix previously wrote The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations released in January by Lionsgate and After Dark Films and Mile Zero set up at Phoenix Pictures starring Milla Jovovich.
Hurd and Platinum Studios chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg will produce. Top Cow CEO Marc Silvestri is executive producer alongside former Universal Pictures senior executive Randy Greenberg of The Greenberg Group, who helped negotiate the deal.
Kitamura is represented by CAA and Brix by BenderSpink and ICM.
