According to Variety, Cruise’s United Artists has optioned the rights to The Champions — the British TV series that starred Damon, Alexandra Bastedo, and William Gaunt — and tapped Del Toro to write, direct, and produce a feature-length adaptation. From the article:
Based on the 1968-69 British TV series, “Champions” will follow the adventures of a team of secret government agents who are rescued from a plane crash by an advanced civilization and given superhuman abilities.
Really, who among us couldn’t do with a little more adventure, humor, and/or glamor? Sounds like it’ll be even more fun than Lions for Lambs!
