After the success of Valkyrie, the directing wunderkind's next project has been up in the air (IMDB has him listed under 'You want me to kill him?' but there seems to be little movement on that film). Well, news has come out that New Regency has picked up the rights to 'Freedom Formula: Ghost of the Wasteland', an adaptation of the comic book of the same name with a view to developing it as a directing vehicle for Singer.
Variety has the story
The comicbook has a futuristic premise in which fighter jets have been replaced by pilots who battle in racing exo-suits. The protag is a genetically engineered racer who learns his bloodline has the power to change society.
Pic is a co-production of Bad Hat Harry Prods. and Radical Pictures, with Singer producing with Radical principal Barry Levine. Jesse Berger and Michael Zoumas are exec producers.
"Mike Finch came up with an incredible take that goes deeper into the mythology of the source material," said Radical's Levine, who is also working with Universal and Spyglass on the Radical comic book title "Hercules: The Thracian Wars,"
Based on Singer's work on X-Men and X2 I think he will have no problem with the sci-fi/action elements of this project. I have no doubt he will come up with something entertaining and memorable. I am unfamiliar with the comic, how does anyone who has read it feel it will translate to the big screen?
