It seems that a mythical underwater city film adaptation is coming together. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joby Harold has signed on to pen the adaptation of Atlantis Rising for DreamWorks.
Len Wiseman is directing the film, based off Scott Mitchell Rosenberg's five-part comic series. Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are producing the film with Rosenberg.
"As a writer, Joby has an amazingly strong understanding of how to take genre seriously, which is prerequisite No. 1 for us when it comes to these kinds of movies," said Kurtzman.
The comic series revolves around the underwater civilization that is discovered after seismic rumblings occur, which sparks a battle with those above sea level.
DreamWorks is eyeing the film as a summer 2011 tentpole affair at this time.
