Gale Anne Hurd To Produce Gearhead
A drag strip racer fights corrupt heroes

19 November 2008  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: Variety

Producer Gale Anne Hurd has had a decent amount of success with comic book movies – she’s overseen both Hulk movies and both Punisher movies through her company, Valhalla Motion Pictures – so it’s no huge surprise to see her return to that world for her latest, Gearhead.

Based on a four-issue Arcana Comics series by the wonderfully-named Dennis Hopeless and Kevin Mellon, Gearhead tells the story of Shelby Cooper, a hot girl with a hot rod and a hotter head who quits the drag strip in order to join a band of rebels and fight a group of corrupt superheroes.

Sounds cool. Sounds demented. Sounds like our cup of tea. More as we get it.
