November 9th, 2016 by Jonathan Snelling Comments


Paramount Pictures have recently acquired the rights to make a film of Rob Liefeld and Cathy Christian’s Avengelyne. 

Deadline have announced that Akiva Goldsmith is set to produce the film, and is also likely the possible director too for the movie described as “‘John Wick’ with a fallen angel”.

Created in 1995, Liefield and Christians’s Avengelyn, follows the story of Avengelyn, a powerful angel from Heaven’s Warhost. After being convinced to question God, Avengelyn was banished to live as a mortal. Despite this punishment, and the loss of most of her powers, she began a quest to fight demons she found on Earth.

Leifeld previously announced plans to develop the film with MMA fighter Gina Carano, although whether she will be cast as Avengelyn is not yet known.

My name is Jonathan Snelling. I’ve been a movie fan for a long time now and last year completed a degree in Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University. It’s hard to choose a favourite film but I’ve always been a major fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. I’m really interested to see how Ben Affleck does in Dawn of Justice as it's set to be an incredible film. I’m usually willing to see any genre but naturally some more so than others.
