reports that Gerard Butler
and director Antoine Fuqua
are circling the Red 5 comic book adaptation Afterburn
Relativity Media is behind the adaptation, and Tobey Maguire
and Neal Moritz
are producers (Maguire was once attached to star, but all has been quiet on that front). The sci-fi saga takes place a year after a solar flare burns half the surface of a planet, and treasure hunters return to retrieve what's left of value.
The script was written by Into the Blue
scribe Matt Johnson
and the source claims that A Man Apart
scribe Christian Gudegast
will perform a re-write.
After years of development, it looks like Afterburn
may finally happen. If so, 20th Century Fox will distribute.
