NEWS FLASH: Director and Writer Chosen for Jenna Dewan's 'Magdalena'

Jenna Dewan is preparing to star as heroine Patience in the 2010 live action film 'Magdalena', which is based on a popular Top Cow comic book.

In the film, Patience discovers that she's a part of the lineage of female warriors descended from Mary Magdalene who fight supernatural evil. The film also stars Luke Goss who plays Kristof, an agent sent by the secret organization that has been the guardian of the Magdalena lineage.

Before Jen begins the rigorous training she will have to go through for the film, she is accompanying Chan on his current 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' around-the-world press tour.

Via her new official Twitter Jenna let us know from London this morning that Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura ('Midnight Meat Train') has now been chosen to helm 'Magdalena', and feels that "he is such a unique visionary".

In Variety we get a few more details... In addition to Ryuhei Kitamura, producer Gale Anne Hurd's Valhalla Motion Pictures and Platinum Studios have also signed Holly Brix to write the screenplay for 'Magdalena'.

Kitamura has directed numerous Japanese films including "Godzilla: Final Wars," "Love Death," "Sky High" and "Azumi." Brix penned "The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations," "The Lost Girls" and "Mile Zero."

'Magdalena' is set to be released in theaters some time in 2010.
