'Duke Nukem' Movie Being Developed By Legendary Entertainment!

It looks like we will finally be getting that long-overdue Duke Nukem movie. Thanks to some information shared by folks over at The Hollywood Reporter this evening, it has been confirmed that Legendary Entertainment is developing a movie adaptation based on the classic video game series. Continue reading for more details.

The site also notes that “Cobra Kai” creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg are on board as produces for the Legendary adaptation.

Nukem centers on its titular hero, modeled on certain attributes from 1980s action movies heroes (including catchphrases), who fights an alien invasion in Los Angeles. He travels from strip clubs and movie sets to moon bases and spaceships, dealing with mutated LAPD officers, women used in alien incubators, and the Cycloid Emperor.

As noted by the report: “Launched with a self-titled debut in 1991 from Apogee Software, later called 3D Realms, Nukem is $1 billion video game franchise that began life as a platform game for personal computers. When the third game, Duke Nukem 3D, came out in 1996, it became not only a critical hit but one that helped usher in the ubiquity of first-person games for years to come. After laying low for years and stalled development, the franchise came back in 2011, after Gearbox acquired 3D Realms, with Duke Nukem Forever.”
