DreamWorks Studios has acquired the film rights to the late “Jurassic Park” author Michael Crichton’s high-concept sci-fi thriller novel “Micro”.
The book was Crichton’s final work and left unfinished when he died. “The Hot Zone” author Richard Preston came in and completed the work from Crichton’s notes with the book ultimately being published in 2011.
The story was follows a group of graduate students studying the microscopic world in search of the next generation of pharmaceuticals. They find themselves lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company, and end up being miniaturized and cast out into the rain forest with nothing but their expertise and wits to protect them.
Frank Marshall is on board to produce.
