The Hollywood Gang lead by Gianni Nunnari and Nick Wechsler have optioned the rights to Warren Ellis’s graphic novel Ocean.
Story concerns the thousands of coffins containing angel-like bodies, and a giant weapon of mass destruction, discovered by a scientist on Jupiter’s ice-covered moon Europa. A U.N. weapons inspector sent to investigate uncovers a chilling secret about the history of humanity.
Nunnari, who also produced 300, and Wechsler, who is also producing Ronin, will produce the film. No word on a potential release date.
