TRON: LEGACY Sequel Writer Adapting Brian Michael Bendis' FIRE With Zac Efron
As well as penning the follow-up to TRON: Legacy and the reboot of The Crow, Jesse Wigutow has now been tapped by Universal Pictures to write a big screen adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis' Fire. Zack Efron meanwhile is attached to star. Hit the jump for details!
According to Deadline, Jesse Wigutow - who is currently writing the sequel to TRON: Legacy for Disney - has closed a deal with Universal to pen the big screen adaptation of Fire. The graphic novel was published by Icon Comics and was sold to the studio by writer Brian Michael Bendis (Uncanny X-Men) and Zac Efron during Sundance three years ago. The Liberal Arts star has been attached to the project ever since and still hopes to take on the lead role in it. Below is the official description of the Fire graphic novel. What do you guys think of this project? Sound off below!
Imagine that you are a shy, quiet college student. Just an average guy trying to get through each day as best he can. Then your government contacts you. They want you to be part of an experiment in the art of human covert operations. Instead of creating an agent from someone within their own ranks, they want to create an agent from nobody, from scratch, from you! Loosely based on events in the American intelligence community during the Reagan administration, Fire tells the unique and powerful story of a young man's journey through the complex world of international intelligence. Fire was Bendis' first major work and helped him attract and develop a new audience for crime graphic novels that he would further challenge in later works such as Jinx, Goldfish, Torso, and Powers.
