Relativity Acquires Movie Rights To CONTINUUM Comic Book

Relativity Media has picked up a film pitch based on Arcana's time travel/post-apocalyptic comic book Continuum, with screenwriter Greg Russo (Heatseekers) on board to pen the adaptation.

According to Deadline, Relativity Media has acquired Continuum, a pitch which is based on Arcana's comic book of the same name. Greg Russo, who recently wrote Heatseekers and High Speed, is signed on to adapt the story in script form. Charles Roven's Altas Entertainment, Arcana Comics' Sean O'Reilly and Benderspink are producing the project, while Relativity's Jason Barhydt is steering it. The comic's logline reads, "175 years after the Earth is devastated by a nano-terrorist attack, with the human race dying out, a historian and team of soldiers are sent back in time to present day New York City in the hopes of figuring out who launched the catastrophic attack and why. The one way mission is the last chance for humanity, saving the future by altering the past." Are you looking forward to the Continuum movie adaptation?
