Jerry Bruckheimer has set J. Michael Straczynski to adapt 2K Games' Shattered Union into a Disney feature.
According to Variety, in the game the states secede from the U.S. and form their own governments that wage a civil war against each other after Washington, D.C., is wiped out in a nuclear blast and chaos ravages the nation. Players control one of the warring group of states -- the California Commonwealth, Republic of Texas and New England Alliance are three of the six -- or a European peacekeeping unit sent to reunify America.
The strategy war game, developed by PopTop Software (behind the "Railroad Tycoon" franchise), was published in 2005 by 2K Games, a division of Take-Two Interactive.
No production date has been announced.
