Leading into the San Diego Comic-Con, Waterman Entertainment has acquired film rights to alien-invasion comic book series Strikeforce: Morituri and plans to start production in December, reports Variety.
The series, created by writer Peter B. Gillis, was published between 1986 and 1989 by Marvel Comics. Gillis and Connor Cochran are writing the script and Jeff Beard will be a producer on the film.
“Story centers on aliens stripping earth of all its resources and a scientist discovering a method of giving humans superhuman powers — but the process results in the superheroes dying within one year from when they acquire their powers. They fight the invaders with the knowledge that their fates are sealed, regardless of the outcome.”
The title comes from the Latin phrase “Morituri te salutamus” — “We who are about to die salute you!”
