Wow, it has surprisingly been a few days since we have heard any new news on a new comicbook, graphic novel or novel to be adapted to the bigscreen. With the demand for stories at an all time high, studios have begun to acquire the rights to novels that haven't even been released yet.
Take for instance The Killing Sea -- though the book has yet to be released to shelves the project has already got both Tony and Ridley Scott standing behind it.
Tony and Ridley Scott Adapt The Killing Sea
According to Variety, Ridley and Tony Scott's Scott Free Prods. will produce The Killing Sea, based on Richard Lewis' upcoming novel, for Fox 2000.
Besides producing, Ridley Scott is also hoping for a seat in the director's chair.
The Killing Sea tells the story of an Indonesian boy and an American girl brought together in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami.
Scott Free recently wrapped A Good Year, based on the novel by Peter Mayle and directed by Ridley Scott, for Fox 2000. Ridley Scott is next directing Universal's American Gangster, starring Denzel Washington.
Tony Scott last directed Domino and worked with Denzel Washington before that on the set of Man on Fire.
