The main premises must be for the hunt of the traitor not War Machine. My 2 cents worth

So, War Machine, but with biochips, stammels, Fort Neuropa and Charybdis in the second act.  There, we're sorted.

Yup.

If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Duncan Jones has other plans

Additional plans. RT will be in development and pre-production for quite some time, and he has to pay the bills.

There's other things from 2000AD I'd rather see turned into films but this could be interesting.

This is ridiculous. It's nearly a week since there was any news! I doubt this film is really getting made!
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Well, if you can scare up $50-$100M in backing and a deal with a distributor, I’m pretty sure Tharg will be happy to talk to you about any 2000AD property you’d like to see on the big screen.

As a stand alone action film, the whole premise and traitor-general story arc of Rogue should work fantastically well. It's a great choice for a movie property. Strontium Dog could make for a great ongoing TV show.

Said it before, but Button Man and Kingdom would be the two 2000ad properties most suited for movie adaptation in my opinion (BM as live action, Kingdom as an animation). Leviathan would also make a great premise for a TV series.

I would love to see an animated Nemesis movie, with Benedict Cumberbatch as Nemesis and James Earl Jones as Torquemada.

Button Man's an interesting one, because it looks like a movie on the page, but the twist would have to be radically reworked on the big screen, purely on the basis that you'd know what the evil git chatting to Harry sounds like.

When I become a billionaire, the Strontium Dog TV show will be the first thing I'll be funding though.

Sounds good. I think Derek Jacobi would be great for voicing Nemesis.

Another vote for Nemesis in case there are any angel investors reading!

Never read it as a twist myself. There's an air of mystery surrounding the 'voice' early on for sure, but as soon as the "cold fish" line is uttered, it's clear who the voice is. And why Harry has gone there in the first place.

It's certainly a big reveal in the story, but not a twist. A movie would be better served with the above scene happening in the middle, as opposed to towards the end IMO.

But anyway, Rogue Trooper Filum! Get Charybdis in there, and then make a spin-off Tor Cyan series on Netflix!
