Gerard Butler May Star In AFTERBURN
It looks like the comic to movie trend is not going away anytime soon! Relavity Media is looking to bring AFTERBURN to the big screen and is in talks with Gerard Butler and director Antoine Fuqua to join the project.
Fuqua is fresh off of Brooklyn’s Finest, and Butler has just finished shooting Machine Gun Preacher, directed by Marc Forster.
Afterburn is based on the Red 5 Comic by Paul Ens and Scott Chitwood. It takes place a year after a solar flare burns away half the surface of Earth and treasure hunters then return to claim what’s left of value.
Matt Johnson (Into the Blue) has written the script, and Christian Gudegast (A Man Apart) may come aboard to do a rewrite.
Afterburn will be produced by Neal Moritz, Toby Jaffe, Tobey Maguire, and Jenno Topping.
