Fate Of The Furious director signs on to MASK movie. Yes!

April 19th, 2018 by Marc Comments

This is awesome news! It looks like the MASK (Mobile Armoured Strike Kommand) toys/series/comics is getting the big screen treatment!

It’s been revealed that Paramount and Hasbro have hired The Fate of the Furious and Straight Outta Compton’s F Gary Gary to direct a live-action MASK movie.

The movie will be based on the awesome 80s toys that featured an elite team of crime fighters who had everyday vehicles that became tanks, helicopters, boats etc and whose main enemy was VENOM a team of evil doers who has similar tech vehicles.

Honestly, it was more awesome than it sounds.

The quest right now is to get a writer on board to make this happen as Gary is currently working on the Men In Black reboot with Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson.

There’s not word if MASK is still part of the shared universe featuring the likes of GI Joe and Transformers, although we can definitely seem them all being the same world and we could actually imagine the Transformers being the reason the transforming vehicles exist… maybe the humans have used Transformers physiology to develop these vehicles?

Works for us.

Anyway, with Gray behind this we honestly are expecting big, exciting fun.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
