F. Gary Gray (“The Fate of the Furious,” “Straight Outta Compton”) is set to direct the film adaptation of Hasbro’s “M.A.S.K.” for Paramount Pictures.
The story is based on the 1980s Kenner action figures and its accompanying animated series about Mobile Armored Strike Kommand (M.A.S.K.), a task force whose mission is to take down the criminal organization known as V.E.N.O.M.
A writer will be set for the project soon with the plan for it to be a “contemporary subculture movie with a youth empowerment angle.” Gray is also producing.
Gray is in pre-production on the untitled “Men in Black” reboot for Sony Pictures starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. That will shoot in June.
