    Guillermo del Toro will write, direct and produce the sci-fi action film Champions for United Artists, reports Variety.

    Based on the 1968-69 British TV series, Champions will follow the adventures of a team of secret government agents who are rescued from a plane crash by an advanced civilization and given superhuman abilities.

    Created by Monty Berman and Dennis Spooner, the original series starred Stuart Damon, Alexandra Bastedo and William Gaunt and mixed adventure, humor and glamour into its plotlines.

    C/W Productions will produce, with Granada's Robert Green executive producing.

    Del Toro's credits Hellboy, Blade II, The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth. He is currently shooting Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

    ^^There used to be. In the 70's.

    And the book that is now called The Order was supposed to be called Champions but had to change the name because some other company has the rights to it.
