Alex Proyas Turns Up The “AMP”

Author Daniel H. Wilson (“Robopocalypse”) has sold film rights for his upcoming novel “AMP” to Summit Entertainment reports Deadline.

The story is set in the near future when technology designed to make the disabled whole turns them into supermen. Summit apparently beat out bids from the likes of Paramount Pictures and Working Title for the rights.

“Knowing” and “I, Robot” director Alex Proyas is attached to produce and will likely direct according to Wilson himself on his blog. Proyas apparently intends to shoot the film in Australia for a modest budget.
