DreamWorks Options Atlantis Rising

DreamWorks has optioned the rights and is planning a live-action feature adaptation of Platinum Studios’ comic book “Atlantis Rising” says Reuters.

Created by Scott Rosenberg, “Atlantis” is a five-part techno-thriller miniseries in which seismic disturbances force the world’s militaries to investigate the deepest part of the oceans, where an underground civilization emerges to wage war with planet Earth.

“Transformers” scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will produce.
