Lloyd Levin (“The Green Zone,” “United 93”) will produce a film adaptation of Warren Fahy’s thriller “Fragment” reports Variety.
The story follows a team of seafaring scientists filming a reality TV show on a remote South Pacific island. They are astonished to encounter a terrifying new species which has been evolving in isolation for 600 million years, an encounter caught on live TV.
When NASA and the Navy arrive to investigate, scientists realize the creatures and their ecosystem are lethal enough to wipe out the rest of the Earth. Authorities must decide whether to sterilize the island or try to save the terrible creatures.
Fahy himself will pen the screenplay and old the rights to Levin after a bidding war broke out for the property.
