Francis Lawrence Helms “Small” People Film

Francis Lawrence (“I Am Legend,” “Constantine”) is tipped to direct a film adaptation of the comic “In the Small” for Weed Road Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures reports Pajiba.

Michael Hague’s graphic novel concerns a strange explosion that leaves all humans six inches tall, yet nothing else is affected. Those who survive the transition are forced to create a new social order and adjust in a world where man is no longer at the top of the food chain.

As they attempt to find out what happened, humanity is faced with a new and existential threat. Laura Harrington penned the adaptation.

Earlier this month Lawrence replaced Guy Ritchie as the director on the WW2 comic adaptation “Sgt. Rock” and Akiva Goldsman is set to produce both projects. Sarah Schechter is also slated to produce ‘Small’.

Both are just two of several projects Lawrence has in development and could be his next picture. Others include Michael Chabon’s “Snow and Seven” and an adaptation of “Water for Elephants”.
