"Sgt. Rock" Moving Into the Future for Director Francis Lawrence 


"Sgt. Rock" based on the DC Comics World War II hero is finally being adapted for the big screen by director Francis Lawrence and scriptwriter Chad St. John.

The caveat? It's now set in the future.

The Hollywood Reporter tells us that producer Joel Silver has been trying to get this film made for nearly 20 years. And now, it seems, the project is moving forward.

Sgt. Rock, a leader of his infantry unit, Easy Company, first appeared in a 1959 issue of "Our Army at War." Then in 1977, the comic was renamed "Sgt. Rock" and ran until 1988.

Warner Bros. is hoping that by setting the film into the future, the project will become marketable.
