Paramount And Hasbro Hire Writer Chris Bremner for 'M.A.S.K.' Movie

Recommended Posts

Paramount and Hasbro has hired writer Chris Bremner to develop the screenplay for M.A.S.K, the action-adventure project based on the 1980s toy line.  Bremner is credited for co-writing the latest Bad Boys franchise movie, Bad Boys for Life, which overperformed at the box office and is close to hitting $400 million worldwide.

Launched simultaneously in 1985 as both a toy line and an animated series, M.A.S.K. stood for Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, an elite strike force that fought crime and terrorism, most notably an organization named V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem).  The brand had the tagline of “Illusion is the ultimate weapon.”

Attached to direct the project is F. Gary Gray, who helmed The Fate of the Furious and Men in Black International.  Gray is also producing via his Fenix Studios banner along with Hasbro’s production arm, Allspark Pictures.

This line was a favorite of mine when I was a kid, curious to see more of this but I'm not terribly excited for it.

I remember reading somewhere the director  wanted to make it a “youth empowerment “ movie back when they were still trying to make Hasbro movies into a shared universe.  All the characters were supposed to be younger than they were on the show.  Hopefully, they’ve moved on from that idea since then.
