Back in the 90s, Image Comics’ The Maxx was adapted for an animated series by MTV, now it’s getting a new adaptation.

According to THR, Channing Tatum and Roy Lee (IT) are teaming up to produce the new version of Sam Keith’s comics.

In the real world, he is a homeless man living in a box but in the Outback, he is a powerful masked being who is the protector of the Jungle Queen. In the real world, the latter is a social worker named Julie Winters who frequently works to help the homeless man, unaware that the alternate reality exists and is exerting a dangerous influence on her life.”

It’s unknown at the moment if the adaptation will be a series or a feature film. At this time, there are no directors or writers attached. But we’ll keep you posted.
