“Taken 2” Helmer Plans A Sci-Fi Spartacus

“Dawson’s Creek” and “Kyle XY” actor-turned-screenwriter Hal Ozsan has penned “The Champion,” a sci-fi action feature described as a futuristic Spartacus.

Olivier Megaton (“Taken 2,” “Taken 3,” “Colombiana”) has been attached to helm the project which follows a man falsely imprisoned for an act of terrorism who must battle through the prison’s gladiator program to regain his freedom.

Endurance is financing the project which aims to begin shooting early next year. Steve Richards, Steve Barnett and James Tomlinson will produce.
