Gina Carano to star in Avengelyne

Friday, July 19, 2013

The comic charcter Avengelyne, or ‘The Dreaded One’, is an angel of Jehovah, Lord of Hosts (not the Vegas ones like Randy’s ex). Created from white fire, the source of angels’ divine power, Avengelyne is one of God’s favorites, feared even by the demons of Hell.

Once Avengelyne was prodded into asking God why he so favored humans so much and nearly naked angels not nearly as much. Then God got mad, and sent her to live among humans, pretty much naked. Then she got ever more naked.

The end.

Now this rival to the Iliad is being brought to the screen, starring favored angel from heaven lookalike Gina Carano.

Carano and the exalted comic creator Rob Liefeld are teaming for the low-mid budget effort, which they see as having the potential to become a franchise vehicle like the Underworld series.

A search for a writer and director begins Monday.

The simple fact is, except for the names and a few other changes, If you talk about Gina, the story’s the same one, unmistakeably.
