Atlantis Rises Via An “Immortals” Producer

Platinum Studios and producer Mark Canton (“300,” “Immortals”) are teaming to resurrect their planned live-action film adaptation of the five-issue graphic novel mini-series “Atlantis Rising” reports MSN.

The sci-fi political techno-thriller kicks off with seismic disturbances forcing the world’s militaries to investigate the deepest part of the oceans. There a ten millennia-old underground civilisation emerges to wage war with planet Earth.

Platinum teamed with Gale Ann Hurd in 2004 and DreamWorks in 2008 to produce the film, both times it never came to fruition. Now with this adaptation they’re planning a potential franchise.
