Marc Forster (“World War Z”) is attached to direct a film adaptation of Pierce Brown’s just-released novel “Red Rising”.
Set on a Mars ruled by a class system, the story follows a man who is a ‘Red,’ the lowest member of society who was born to toil in the planet’s bowels.
Suffering both a devastating loss and betrayal, he becomes a revolutionary, out to bring about social justice.
Brown has adapted the script while Joe Roth, Palak Patel and Renee Wolf are producing. The project is expected to be Forster’s next, though no studio is yet aboard.
