Fox Is Making a 70's Action Movie Starring a Young Stan Lee
Biopics are all the rage these days, but this is going in a slightly different direction. Fox just bought the rights to Stan Lee's life, but instead of making a movie about—I don't know—Stan Lee's life, they're making a 70's action movie starring a fictionalized version of Stan Lee.

THR, who broke the news, reported that the film will be a "period action adventure" in the "tone of Kingsman: The Secret Service." Or, as one source put it, "Roger Moore's 007." So a young Lee would be a geeky version of James Bond, complete with an alter-ego and everything.

This sounds like a completely insane idea, although if they're using Kingsman as a model, then it's possible that it will be a pleasantly silly send-up of 70's action movies. I don't know what would possess them to do this with Stan Lee's life rights, of all things, but if it turns out to be decent, then more power to them.
