Warner Bros. Pictures has brought on I Am Legend 2 writer Arash Amel to do a page-one rewrite of their action-adventure feature Methuselah.

The action film follows a 1,000-year-old man who has spent his time on the planet to build an unparalleled set of skills for survival. The Woman in Black director James Watkins is directing the project with David Heyman producing through his Heyday Films.

The writer also worked on Grace of Monaco, which stars Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. That project comes to theaters in 2014.

No production schedule was given for Methuselah.
