$30MM Allan Quartermain Show Announced by Sonar Entertainment and Ecosse Films

The hero of the books by H. Rider Haggard and later in the League of Extraordinary Gentleman by Alan Mooree is all set to star in his own TV series.

I’m sure that anyone who has looked at the GS banner at the top of the website will know that one of us is a big fan of all things pulp adventure(it’s me! it’s me!) so news of a $30 million 10 part series following the adventures of Allan Quatermain is something that’s right up my street.

There is no one signed up to play the lead role but according to Hollywood Reporter the hunt is on for British male actors in their early 30’s to take on the part.I don’t know how old he is but I’d like to see James Purefoy as the lead in this one.

The budget for the show is expected to be around $3 million per one hour episode.

So what do we all think good idea or bad? Who would you cast as Quatermain?

Maybe if this goes well we could get a few other adventure shows…reboots of Tales of the Gold Monkey and Bring em Back Alive perhaps or even an Indiana Jones TV series.
