Leonardo Da Vinci Next Action Hero?

Yes, you read it correctly, Leonardo Da Vinci again! But this time it has nothing to do with Dan Brown’s book, this story will be about Da Vinci who uses his inventions (presumably including his famous flying machine designs) to defeat supernatural enemies. Weird idea? Surprised yet?

Anyway, it’s pretty much obvious that this is some new Hollywood trand, some kind of history re-writing, so it’s no wonder news like this came out after last week’s announcement by Warner Bros of a “fantasy-adventure” about the 13th century traveller Marco Polo. They are obviously very much interested into historical figures, since we already wrote about new project of Guy Ritchie – a movie about King Arthur, and other Hollywood films in the pipeline are a reinvention of Moby Dick and an all-action biopic of Moses. So, be prepared for Hollywood history attack! Some believe that this sounds silly but still very interesting, others hate the idea of this mix, replying that there are people without enough knowledge of history, and could be even more confused with this new ideas.
