Olympus Pictures and Rob Morrow's Bits & Pieces Picture Co. are producing a feature version of Robert Charles Wilson's sci-fi thriller Spin.

Variety says the novel, which won the Hugo Award, centers on a young scientist trying to save humanity from the impending apocalypse of a spin that has enveloped the Earth amid realization that salvation may be found with the discovery of life on Mars.

Spin is the first of a planned trilogy, published by Tor Books. "Axis" was released last year and will be followed by "Vortex."
