Adam Strange Movie in 2013?

Whilst neither Golden Age or even Typical Superhero fair Im quite interested to see in Adam Strange actually reaches the big screen in 2013.
The official movie "blurb" reads as follows - "Strange is an archeologist who is suddenly teleported from Earth to a planet called Rann, where he has been called on to protect the planet from “extraterrestrial threats"

Considering how impending 2013 actually is - the film is still marked "In Development" on the IMDB!
Created by Gardner Fox - Adam Strange is reminiscent of Edgar Rice Burroughs John Carter of Mars.

Both characters have origins in which they are chased by "primitives" only to find themselves transported mysteriously at the last moment to far-off planets where they become heroic figures (in Carter's case it was Mars).

Adam Strange is transported to Rann - a strange world full of alien opponents to fight, and the (seemingly) required love interest.

I quite like Adam Strange, he's even made appearances in more main stream titles like the JLA.

It will be interesting to see what the film-makers do with him should it ever come to fruition.
