Alloy Entertainment is partnering with “24” showrunner Howard Gordon and writer-director James Wong for a sci-fi project titled 2084, reports Heat Vision. The project is being developed simultaneously as a film and a young adult book series, with HarperCollins buying the three-tome series.
Pitched as a sort of 1984 meets The Terminator, the story is “set in the late 21st century, a time where robots, once created to aid humans and fight wars, now control the population’s every move.”
Gordon and Wong conceived the project, with the books being written by debut author Gregg Rosenblum.
Wong, who directed Final Destination and Final Destination 3, most recently was a writer and co-exec producer on NBC’s cancelled sci-fi series “The Event.”
