Sony Pictures has picked up film rights to Jeff Somers’ sci-fi novel series “The Electric Church” says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story is set in a near future where Earth is run by a federation of nations and governed by a council.
Avery Cates is a bodyguard-assassin who, in “Church,” is forced by the governing police force to kill the founder of a church that converts people by transplanting their brains into pliant robotic bodies.
Trevor Sands (“Redemption Falls”) is adapting the first of the three books penned so far under the title “The Avery Cates Project”. Jimmy Miller is producing.
