I love a cool concept, especially something that’s quasi-unique. The Fighter (and The Happening, LOL) star Mark Wahlberg apparently agrees as he’ll be producing a feature-length version of Ricardo De Montreuil’s short film The Raven (watch it inside) for Universal Pictures. Justin Marks will write the script that will focus on a young man with powers being chased around downtown Los Angeles by robotic police drones, while a giant police ship coordinates the effort from the skies above. The concept has a little of They Live, Eagle Eye, I, Robot, and a whole lotta awesome. There’s nothing more terrifying than the idea of a police state. Universal’s Raven is not to be confused with FilmNation and Intrepid Pictures’ project with the same title that tells the tale of Edgar Allan Poe.
