Alex Proyas Directing Sci-Fi Thriller Adaptation Of Daniel H. Wilson’s AMP


Alex Proyas (Dark City, The Crow) is set to direct a new sci-fi thriller for Summit Entertainment called AMP.

The film will be based on an unpublished novel being written by Daniel H. Wilson, who also wrote Robopocalypse, which Steven Spielberg is adapting into a movie. 

The new novel is set in a world where the technology designed to make the disabled whole, turns them into supermen. Sounds like the perfect kind of story for Proyas to tackle. 
This new book has been a hot commodity and is currently on the auction block with Working Title and Paramount Pictures trying to acquire the rights. According to Deadline “Wilson took the Summit deal because he was impressed by Proyas, who’ll shoot the picture at a modest budget in Australia under his Mystery Clock Cinema banner.” 
The book is still being written at the moment by Wilson.  Plans are being made to hire a screenwriter who’ll take his novel pages and draft them into script for the film.
The story sounds very intriguing and I am interested to see what Proyas does with this film. What do you think about AMP?
