Len Wiseman to Adapt "Shrapnel" Comic Book

Posted: July 23rd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Len Wiseman to Adapt "Shrapnel" Comic BookSubmit Comment
Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard) has signed to develop and direct a film adaptation of the graphic novel "Shrapnel" for Radical Pictures.

Wiseman said that he was browsing comic-book stores with his 10-year-old daughter, Lily, when he happened upon the comic the day it hit shelves. He quickly had his agent scout the rights.

The graphic novel describes a sci-fi future where humans have colonized the solar system and formed a Solar Alliance to govern the planets. The story focuses on Venus, the last rebellious holdout, and a self-exiled former Marine who teaches the colonists how to fight back.

"I am really drawn to the reluctant-hero story," said Wiseman, who noted that the last hero he directed -- John McClane in "Live Free or Die Hard" -- fit that archetypal mold.

Being developed as a live-action pic, Wiseman is considering going the 3-D route.

This son of a bitch gets to bang Kate Beckinsale. For that, I hate him.

f*cking 3d sucks, after like 20minutes or so it gives me a head ache... so i really hope that opts not to go the 3d route.

Yay, it's "Avatar" meets the video game "Red Faction", BUT ON VENUS!

There's some things that should just be left in their own medium. This is definitely one of them.
