Moritz Producing Soviet-Themed “Red Star”

Warner Bros. Pictures is in negotiations to pick up Christian Gossett’s Soviet-themed sci-fi fantasy comic book series “The Red Star” which had been put into turnaround by Universal Pictures says Variety.

The setting is an alternate USSR inspired by Russian folklore and military history – blending technology and magic. The story follows a soldier in the Red Fleet and his wife who become keys to defeating a former brutal ruler and his minions.

Amongst such elements are gigantic flying warships two miles long. Neal Moritz and Jason Netter will produce.
