“IT” Producer Adapting “Ma.K” Into A Film

“IT” producer Roy Lee is teaming with Scott Bernstein to adapt the 1980s epic sci-fi Japanese property “Ma.K” into a feature film for Warner Bros. Pictures.

The story is set in the distant future after a nuclear war caused survivors to flee Earth. When the planet is habitable once again, new colonies are set up, but it’s not long before a battle over resources begins.

One side wants to make Earth independent, and a new revolutionary war begins – this time with mechanized armor and robots. Created by artist and sculptor Kow Yokoyama, Ma.K was a monthly comic that also tied into customizable model kits.

Yokoyama, Rick Privman, Yumiko Miyano and Kevin Munroe will executive produce the film.
