Lost Planet (TBA)
With large video game epics such as Halo and Gears of War in film development. Capcom and Warner Bros. will have their work cut out for them with their live-action adaptation of Lost Planet. The ambitious science fiction project is estimated to have a budget of between $150-200 million dollars. The investment of this size leads me to believe that they hope to make this a franchise. By spending the money needed upfront to make sure the first installment is quality could work out to sequels.
David Hayter (Watchmen, X2) will write the script. Which gives me the idea that Zack Snyder or Bryan Singer could end up directing.
My Casting Picks:
Rain (Ninja Assassin) or Daniel Henney (Wolverine) as Wayne
Rose Byrne (Sunshine) or Carice van Houten (Black Book) as Luka
Damian Lewis (Band of Brothers) or Peter Stormare (Minority Report) as Yuri
Michael Angarano (Forbidden Kingdom, Snow Angels) as Rick
