Duke Nukem is gearing up for action again, with a film in the works from the creators of Cobra Kai. THR reports that a film based on the famous video game franchise in the works from Legendary Entertainment with Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg (Cobra Kai) involved. The trio will produce the film through their Counterbalance Entertainment banner.

A writer and director are being sought currently, though there is a possibility that any of the three may direct. Duke Nukem is owned by Gearbox Software, who sold the rights to Legendary after they tried to get a John Cena-starring version of the film off the ground.

Duke Nukem 3D was one of the iconic early first-person shooter games and is perhaps most well-known for Duke Nukem 3D in 1996. The franchise has grossed over $1 billion and centers on the titular hero, a riff on 1980s action heroes who battles invading aliens in Los Angeles.
