Robopocalypse author Daniel H. Wilson is finalizing a deal to develop his best-selling thriller Amped as a movie at Working Title Films, says THR.
The project originally had been set up in 2010 at Summit Entertainment, which optioned the novel in advance of its sale to Doubleday. But the company let the rights lapse as it merged with Lionsgate this year.
“Set in the near future, Amped imagines a world where nanotech-enhanced people and ordinary humans are at war with one another.”
Alex Proyas (I, Robot, Knowing, The Crow) is attached to direct.
Wilson’s Robopocalypse is being adapted by Steven Spielberg for a planned release in summer 2014. Drew Goddard penned the script for the DreamWorks-20th Century Fox co-production.
