League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie reboot in the works

A new feature film reboot of the film "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" has been tipped with Fox entering development this week. Remember that less-than-successful film from 2003 based on the Alan Moore / Kevin O'Neill comic books that began publication in 1999? The one with Sean Connery as Allan Quatermain. No?
