Live Free or Die Hard director Len Wiseman has been tapped to direct Radical Publishing’s movie adaptation of Shrapnel.
Co-created by Zombie Studiosâ€™ CEO Mark Long and science fiction novelist Nick Sagan, Shrapnel is an epic 3-part miniseries that unfolds in a dystopian future in which imperialism has laid siege to the Solar System and Venus stands as the last free colony of humanity. Caught in the middle of this interplanetary war is Samantha â€œSamâ€ Vijaya, a soldier in self-imposed exile recovering from her service in the military. When the battle once again crashes into Samâ€™s life, she must choose to either remain on the sidelines and watch a colonyâ€™s destruction, or risk her physical and psychological well-being to intervene. The first story arc revolves around Venus, while the second arc rages across Mars and the final climax carries over onto Earth itself.
The movie is being developed as a live action flick, but may swing into 3D if needed.Â A video game of Shrapnel is also in the works from Zombie Stuiods’, the company producing the movie.
