Fox, Constantin Pick Up Sci-Fi Works

20th Century Fox has picked up the film rights to Top Cow’s one-shot 2011 sci-fi thriller comic “Theory of Everything” by Dan Casey and Nick Nantell.

The story follows a disgraced scientist as he seeks to rescue his thought-dead wife from a parallel dimension. Dan Jinks (“American Beauty,” “Milk”) will produce.

Meanwhile, Constantin Film have acquired the film rights to Neal Shusterman’s 2007 young-adult sci-fi novel “Unwind”. Robert Kulzer, Marc Benardout, Catherine Kimmel, Julian Stone and Charlotte Stoudt will produce.

The story is set in a dystopian future after the Second Civil War, a world in which teenagers’ parents can decide if they want their children’s organs transplanted into different donors at Harvest Camps – a process known as being “unwound.”
