The iconic “Duke Nukem” series is being filmed! The “Cobra Kai” makers are currently working on a film based on the well-known video game brand.
Hail to the king baby! From an exclusive report of the usually very well-informed industry magazine The Hollywood Reporters reveals that a film based on the legendary “Duke Nukem” series is currently being worked on. Responsible for the project will be the team that is currently working on the “Karate Kid” sequel “Cobra Kai”, which will be in its 5th season on Netflix this year.
Legendary Pictures will produce the Duke Nukem film
Specifically, those people are Josh Heald (“Hot Tub”), Jon Hurwitz (“Harold & Kumar”) and Hayden Schlossberg (“American Pie”), all on board as producers. Legendary Pictures, the film production company behind well-known blockbusters like Godzilla vs. Kong and The Dark Knight, has secured the rights from video game developer Gearbox.
In addition, Legendary Pictures will also produce the Duke Nukem film. Jean Julien Baronnet (“Assassin’s Creed”) and Marla Studios, who specialize in video game adaptations, are also on board as producers. In addition to the first feature film about the Duke, the team is currently also working on a TV series based on Ubisoft’s “Brothers in Arms” franchise.
Further details about the upcoming “Duke Nukem” film adaptation are not yet known. For example, the search for a suitable screenwriter is still ongoing and the director’s position has not yet been filled. However, according to the Hollywood Reporter, the film’s creators are open to the possibility of offering the director’s chair to a member of Counterbalance Entertainment (Heald, Hurwitz, Schlossberg).
