Currently working on the upcoming film Eragon, based on the best-selling novel by Christopher Paolini, John Malkovich again finds his name on the call-sheet of another big adaptation.
Malkovich and Jane in Mutant Chronicles
According to THR, producer Edward J. Pressman made an announcement that John Malkovich will co-star with Thomas Jane in the adaptation of the popular RPG game The Mutant Chronicles.
John Malkovich is portraying a 23rd century corporate overlord opposite Thomas Jane in Simon Hunter's sci-fi action thriller The Mutant Chronicles.
Malkovich's character Constantine heads a United Nations-style council of four corporation-run countries that have pillaged Earth's natural resources. When a marauding army of "NecroMutants" wages a battle against humans for the little that remains, Constantine is tempted to destroy the planet and evacuate some of its people rather than allow it to be overtaken, all with the corporations' best interests in mind.
Jane plays Maj. Mitch Hunter, a Marine who leads the humans in their fight and becomes Constantine's antagonist. The story is based on the popular role-playing board game.
