Deadpool was a big hit for Fox earlier this year, thanks in part to the extremely dedicated comic-book fans that are already accustomed to buying everything with his face on it. Naturally, Hollywood has now decided to look into Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld to see if he has done anything else with a similarly enduring popularity, even though most comic-book fans can probably agree that he hasn’t. Still, Deadline is reporting that Paramount is picking up the rights to Avengelyne, a Liefeld and Cathy Christian comic from the ’90s about a fallen angel who battles demons on Earth while wearing as little clothing as possible. It is a ’90s Rob Liefeld comic, after all.

Akiva Goldsman, who worked on the script for The Dark Tower, is planning to produce and possibly direct Avengelyne, and the Deadline story notes that the film is being billed as “John Wick with a fallen angel.” Basically, then, it sounds like the Constantine movie but with a female lead and more nudity.
