Fox The Favourite For Howey’s “Wool”

20th Century Fox is the frontrunner to pick up the film rights to Hugh Howey’s self-published sci-fi novel and online sensation “Wool” says Deadline.

Set in a dystopian future, the last inhabitants on earth band together in safe bunkers called silos. No one is allowed outside until a secret is discovered that could change the course of humanity.

Ridley and Tony Scott’s Scott Free are teaming with Film Rites’ Steve Zaillian and Garrett Basch to produce.
