Christian Alvart Has Zero Chance

Warner Independent Pictures has attached German filmmaker Christian Alvart (“Case 39”, “Antibodies”) to direct the bigscreen adaptation of Jess Walter’s satirical political tome “The Zero” reports Variety.

Walter’s book centers on a New York City cop who shoots himself in the head less than a week after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Suffering strange memory lapses, he is assigned to work at a shadowy agency where he must analyze every scrap of paper blown across New York when the Twin Towers fell. He suddenly finds himself drawn into a sinister government plot.
