Hasbro and Paramount’s upcoming M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand film has added Bad Boys For Life writer Chris Bremner to pen the script for the upcoming film.
The upcoming M.A.S.K. film was first announced in 2015 as part of a shared cinematic universe between Hasbro’s various properties. This would include other Hasbro properties such as G.I. Joe, Micronauts, and Rom the Space Knight. Movement on the film, however, has been relatively slow. For a time it was even rumored that the film was going to be canceled but that does not seem to be the case.
The M.A.S.K. franchise itself is one of Hasbro’s lesser-known properties and was originally created by toy company Kenner. The franchise centers on an organization known as M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and its battles against a terrorist organization known as V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem). The last major news that we heard about the M.A.S.K. film was that Fate of the Furious and Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray would be helming the project in April of 2018. Now, however, we know that the film has added a new writer to its crew.
According to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, Bad Boys For Life scribe Chris Bremner is now set to write the screenplay for the upcoming M.A.S.K. film. Chris Bremner’s previousf film, Bad Boys for Life, was a big hit with audiences and critics, earning over $390M worldwide on a $90M budget and currently has a 77% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But, from the look of things, Hasbro and Paramount want to bring in the Bad Boys For Life writer into whatever cinematic universe that they are planning.
