The library of books and graphic novels must be getting small, as Hollywood has been shifting over to video games for big-budget adaptations. The latest vidgame to fall under a studio's scope is the popular RTS, Lost Planet, which Warner Bros. and Capcom will team to produce.
Lost Planet Movie Coming
Capcom is so exciting about getting Lost Planet onto film that they have agreed to co-finance the project. Now all they need to do is find some talent...
David Hayter, who is coming off the Zack Snyder-directed WB adaptation Watchmen, has been picked up to pen the screenplay.
While many of you likely haven't heard of the video game, Lost Planet has enough popularity to build interest in it. Released in North America in early 2007, the video game has sold over 2 million units.
Lost Planet revolves around an expedition to an ice planet that harbors an energy source with the potential to save mankind. Warner Bros. will not only help produce the pic, but the studio has agreed to also handle worldwide distribution.
