Diabolik (2020)

Luca Marinelli has been cast in the title role for a new Diabolik film produced by Rai Cinema. Adapted from the classic Italian comic by Angela and Luciana Guissani, Rai's Diabolik will co-star Miriam Leoone as Eva Kant, Valerio Mastandrea as Inspector Ginko, and Serena Rossi in an unnamed role.

"We are proud of our casting choices," said producers Antonio and Marco Manetti (translated from Italian). "Diabolik is an Italian comic strip - a myth of the collective imagination - and we strongly wanted the cast to be 100% Italian. In choosing the protagonists, we did not rely on the mere resemblanced, but we aimed - and found - good actors, able to communite the right emotions."

Diabolik has been a staple in Italian comics since its debut in 1962 from Astorina, and follows the titular thief as he slowly segues from being a ruthless criminal to learning how to be a better person. Kant is Diabolik's long-time partner/lover, and they are pursued by police forces led by Inspector Ginko. Grant Morrison has said that his Marvel character Fantomex is based on Diabolik.

"Luca Marinelli, one of the versatile actors of Italian cinema, is able to bring the charm and coldness of Diabolik on screen without making him lose humanity," the brothers continued.

Marinelli is currently filming Netflix's The Old Guard.

"Miriam Loeon is an actress with character, both beautiful and sensual, and is the perfect Eva kant. Valerio Mastandrea is so empathetic, he will be able to make Ginko the antagonist to love."

Rai's Diabolik is scheduled to debut in 2020.

....."learning how to be a better person". Ah, from what I understand, his nickname throughout the series is the King of Terror.

In any case, despite having never been able to read any issues of this in English, I'm still intrigued and psyched. Really hoping this gets ported to Netflix.

I'll keep my eye out for this! I've never read the comics, but I loved the Saban cartoon!

Well, Mystery Science Theater 3000 came back. Only makes sense that their last movie would come back, too. It's like Piccolo and Kami.

I wasnít even aware this franchise still existed as my only knowledge of it comes from the movie that was featured on MST3K and a few comic scans I saw here and there.

If itís done well I guess it could be interesting though.
