Warner Bros. to Make Leonardo Da Vinci Action Movie

Leonardo Da Vinci will be turned into an action hero, The Hollywood Reporter announced on March 10. Warner Bros. Pictures is currently developing a script, titled “Leonardo Da Vinci and the Soldiers of Forever,” which will follow the famous painter, inventor, engineer, architect and mathematician as he joins a secret society.

The society will venture into a supernatural adventure that will square the painter of the “Mona Lisa” and “The Last Supper” against Biblical demons. The story will reportedly be a combination of ‘National Treasure,’ ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and the movie that bears his name, ‘The Da Vinci Code.’ The movie will also focus on fallen angels, hidden fortresses, lost civilizations and secret codes, The Hollywood Reporter revealed.

Adrian Askarieh will produce the movie with his company Prime Universe. He came up with the idea and wrote the treatment. However, he won’t be writing the script, and the company is currently seeking a screenwriter.

Warner Bros. is eager to embark on more movies featuring historical figures, after the success of last year’s ‘Sherlock Holmes.’ It’s rumored that the studio will release a supernatural thriller featuring Marco Polo, and ‘Sherlock Holmes’ director Guy Ritchie will work on a movie about King Arthur.
