Ratner acquires ‘Unknowns’

Rat Entertainment nabs film rights to comic book

Brett Ratner’s Rat Entertainment is shining a light on “The Unknowns,” acquiring feature film rights to the comic book from Femme Fatales Comics.

Ratner’s producing “The Unknowns,” based on the comic created by Mark A. Altman (“DOA: Dead Or Alive”), Steve Kriozere (“NCIS”) and model/actress Monica Olsen.

Story centers around Alexis Davenport, who while living a seemingly ordinary life discovers she was actually once the highly skilled and deadly leader of a mysterious team called The Unknowns and must learn the secret of why her memories were erased and by who.

“We think ‘The Unknowns’ will be a great new comic book/action franchise,” said Ratner, who’s in preproduction as a producer on New Line’s “Horrible Bosses.”

No director has been tapped yet for “The Unknowns.” John Cheng will exec produce and oversee for Rat Entertainment.
