We first reported on the futuristic sci-fi adventure back in March, when Fox 2000 acquired the rights to Catherine Fisher's novel. Taylor Lautner will play Finn, a young lifelong resident of Incarceron, which is a fully self-contained prison society. Finn meets the daughter of the Incarceron warden, who is housed in her own prison which resembles the 17th Century. When they find a mysterious key, and learn about the only man to ever escape the prison, they hatch their own plan to escape.
Adam Cooper and Bill Collage are adapting the Catherine Fisher novel, which was first published in the U.K. in 2007 and quickly shot up the best-seller charts when it was published in America in February. Actor Hugh Jackman is producing along with John Palermo.
No director is attached at this time and a production schedule wasn't revealed either.
