Mark Heyman Set To Write Age of Rage & Machine Man

HeatVision reports that Black Swan screenwriter Mark Heyman has been set to write Age of Rage for director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer, Spider-Man). The project is getting comparisons to a mix between Lord of The Files meets Children of Men. It's set in a post-apocalyptic society where all the adults have died and a group of teens sets about trying to establish a new society.

Heyman is also working on adapting Max Berry's novel Machine Man for Darren Aronofsky. A gadget geek and engineer working at a forward-thinking tech firm decides to systematically replace his weaker fleshy parts with high-end titanium performance upgrades of his own design. But he isn’t the only one with plans for his superior parts. It's likely this will be next film for Aronofsky when completes production on The Wolverine.
