darkhorse.gifUnfortunately it isn’t another Indiana Jones movie, but Columbia Pictures has acquired the rights to The Ark graphic novel from Dark Horse Comics. The script will be written by Mark Verheiden with Neal Moritz and Mike Richardson will produce.

The Ark is a retelling of the biblical story but with UFOs thrown in to make it interesting.

If Verheiden and Moritz sound familiar they should, they have produced a slew of comic movies including Time Cop and The Mask. Moritz is currently developing The Green Hornet movie and I Am Legend, while Richardson is the producer for Hellboy 2: The Golden Army and executive producer for 30 Days of Night.

If you are going to do comic book adaptations, these two understand the frustrations of translating one form of art to another.
