Justin Rhodes will write the adapted screenplay, which will divert heavily from the novel. The story centers on an ex-cop caught in a race against time to stop an ancient artifact from bringing on the apocalypse. No details were given regarding how the adaptation may differ from the source material.
There is a possibility that David S. Goyer might direct, although nothing is set in stone yet. While David S. Goyer is best known as a screenwriter for tentpoles such as The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel, he has also directed thrillers such as The Unborn, The Invisible, and Blade: Trinity.
No production schedule has been given for this adaptation.
