Cohen Develops Isaac Newton: Action Hero

We’ve got a vampire-hunting Abraham Lincoln, now how about one of history’s foremost scientists as an action hero?

Rob Cohen (“Stealth,” “The Fast and the Furious”) is set to direct an action tentpole feature based on the life of Sir Isaac Newton for BiteSize Entertainment says Variety.

The 17th century physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and theologian is credited with laying the foundations for most classical mechanics.

Cohen will pen an original screenplay as well as guide the design of a graphic novel based on part of Newton’s life when he served as chief detective and head of the British Mint. Gene Kirkwood (“Rocky”) will produce.
