Scott Waugh To Direct “Hawken” Adaptation

“Act Of Valor” co-director Scott Waugh is set to direct a live-action adaptation of the video game “Hawken” at Meteor Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures says Deadline.

The free-to-play mech combat game is set on a post-apocalyptic human-colonized planet industrialized to the point of collapse. There, the hunt for resources has become a battle for survival.

The team behind the game revealed the news at the Comic-Con panel for the web series, and confirmed that Bandito Brothers will be producing.

Waugh remains in talks to helm an adaptation of “Need For Speed” at DreamWorks.
