Remember the M.A.S.K. movie based on the action figure toyline from the 1980s? Well, it’s still happening – and it’s found its writer. Chris Bremner, who co-wrote Bad Boys For Life, has just been tapped to pen the script for the film, which is being directed by F. Gary Gray. Plot details remain masked in secrecy, but it’s safe to assume the story will involve M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) fighting V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem).
The Hasbro Cinematic Universe, which is a real thing, is taking a step or two backwards. After a big recent announcement setting dates for a whole slew of Hasbro-related films, two properties – M.A.S.K. and ROM: The Space Knight – have been officially omitted from the line-up. But don’t worry: the Transformers franchise will remain unaffected. Thank heavens. I know you were all very concerned about that.
