According to Variety, Platinum Studios chairman Scott Mitchell Rosenberg has teamed with Gale Anne Hurd and her Valhalla Motion Pictures to produce Magdalena, a faith-based feature based on a Top Cow comicbook. Kevin Taft will write the script.
The story concerns a young woman named Patience who discovers she is part of a lineage of female warriors descended from Mary Magdalene. She must save the world from supernatural evil.
Magdalena is "exactly the kind of project we love, a strong female lead character, a story with rich mythology and compelling characters," said Hurd, who produced "Terminator" and Aeon Flux. "The religious overtone adds a new dimension to the adventure story."
