“Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” actress Kat Dennings isn’t the first name you’d associate with comic book movies, but when we had the chance to sit down with her during the Toronto International Film Festival, she was quick to name-drop an adaptation she’d like to bring to the big screen.
In town to discuss her upcoming, pseudo-superhero movie “Defendor” with Woody Harrelson, Dennings called out action-horror series “Hack/Slash” when asked if there were any books she’d like to play a role in adapting.
“You know who’s a cool girl comic book thing?” said Dennings. “Hack/Slash!”
Last we heard from the “Hack/Slash” front, commercial director Fredrik Bond had taken over directing duties on the film, replacing Todd Lincoln. The Devil’s Due Publishing series is currently in development with Rogue Pictures, the Relativity Media subsidiary responsible for “Shaun of the Dead” and “Doomsday.”
“Hack/Slash” stars Cassie Hack, a girl who travels the world hunting supernatural serial killers with the help of her partner, a lumbering giant named Vlad.
Justin Marks, the screenwriter for “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li” and drafts of the “Super Max,” “Grayskull” and “Voltron” movies, penned the script for “Hack/Slash.”
Think Dennings would be a good fit for Cassie? Let us know what you think in the comment section or on Twitter!
