Chronicle Helmer Directs “The Red Star”

“Chronicle” helmer Josh Trank is developing to direct the Soviet-themed sci-fi fantasy graphic novel adaptation “The Red Star” for Warner Bros. Pictures and Original Film says Deadline.

Christian Gossett’s comic is set in an alternate USSR where futuristic technology co-mingles with magical elements, while the protagonist is a Red Fleet soldier who goes up against an ex-leader who rules with an iron fist.

Jason Rothenberg penned the script while Neal Moritz will produce. Warners picked up the project after Universal put it into turnaround.
