THR reports that ‘Bad Boys For Life’ screenwriter Chris Bremner has been selected to pen the script for an upcoming film adaptation of the 1980’s toys and cartoon franchise ‘M.A.S.K.’ for Hasbro and Paramount Pictures. Originally inspired in part by ‘Transformers’ and ‘G.I. Joe,’ ‘M.A.S.K.’ was an action cartoon series about the titular Mobile Armored Strike Kommand and their fights against terrorism, most notably against the faction known as V.E.N.O.M. (short for ‘Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem’).
Currently no details on Bremner’s take on ‘M.A.S.K.’ have been revealed, but ‘The Fate of the Furious’ and ‘Men in Black: International’ director F. Gary Gray is set to helm the film. He will also produce the film through his Fenix Studios, alongside Hasbro’s production company Allspark Pictures.
Bremner is currently in the midst of a hot streak, having recently penned the aforementioned surprise hit ‘Bad Boys For Life’ and is already attached to write the fourth ‘Bad Boys’ film, as well as Disney’s ‘National Treasure 3.’
There is currently no release date as of now.
