Len Wiseman is set to direct the film adaptation of Nick Sagan and Mark Long's graphic novel Shrapnel: says The Hollywood Reporter.
The future see that humans have colonized the solar system and formed a Solar Alliance to govern the planets.
On Venus, the last rebellious holdout, a self-exiled former Marine teaches the colonists how to fight back.
"I am really drawn to the reluctant-hero story," Wiseman told The Hollywood Reporter, comparing the character to Bruce Willis' John McClane in "Live Free or Die Hard."
Might Willis play the Ex Marine since Wiseman compared the lead in Shrapnel to Det. McClane?
Barry Levine Wiseman and Mark Gordon will produce.
A 3-D option is being considered for the pic.--Ugh!!
