Jules Verne And H.G. Wells To Team Up For Adventure

By Josh Tyler | Published

Writers are, usually, pretty boring. The people who write the most interesting stories are rarely themselves the most interesting people. There are always exceptions, like Hunter S. Thompson, for instance. But he definitely wasn’t the norm.

Luckily reality will have absolutely nothing to do with The Royal Literary Honor Society, a new movie being produced by Sony in which sci-fi literary masters H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and Robert Louis Stevenson will team up to have an adventure. What form that adventure will take is anyone’s guess at this point, but it’s being billed a feature in the vein of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen only, presumably, good.

There’s certainly no shortage of literary intrigue to mine in the catalogue of those three writers. Borrowing from Jules Verne’s books could pit them against the likes of Captain Nemo, H.G. Wells could bring Martians to the table, and Robert Louis Stevenson has Jekyll & Hyde. If you’re going to use those three authors to me it only makes sense to involve their stories in their real world adventures.
