Re: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen gets pilot order at Fox

I was entertaining a crazy notion of whether they could transplant the concept to a modern setting. I am not aware of any period settings on network television.
Next year there will be Dracula on NBC, starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (formerly of The Tudors).

And while there is a modern-day League, I'm unclear if the rights to that is included in what FOX bought years ago or if those rights are still with Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill. For that matter, if I were a television network, I wouldn't touch the modern League with a bargepole because it's a hotbed of copyright infringement that would be impossible to clear.
