Connery Makes Gentlemen Agreement

Sean Connery has signed to star in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen for director Steve Norrington (Blade) and 20th-Century Fox. Alan Moore (From Hell) wrote the original comic book series about a Victorian-era adventure in which Dr. Jekyll, Mina Harker (Dracula), Captain Nemo (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea), Allan Quatermain and the Invisible Man must save England from a madmanís plot. The script was adapted by comics veteran James Robinson (Starman). Connery will play Quartermain, an adventurer who predates Indiana Jones. Shooting begins this summer.
