It was only a matter of time.

The comic book series “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” is getting a big screen reboot.

Originally created by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill, “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” stars a group of Victiorian literature characters including Allan Quatermain (“King Solomon’s Mines”), Captain Nemo (“Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”), the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Mina Harker of Dracula. The team is put together by the British government to foil a plot at the center of a war between villains Fu Manchu and Professor Moriarty. Later volumes of the series would weave in the plots of War of the Worlds, the works of H.P. Lovecraft, and even “Harry Potter.”
