Bryan Singer (“X-Men” franchise) and Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow”) to team up for “Uprising”
Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox are teaming up to adapt Robert A. Heinlein‘s classic Hugo Award-winning sci-fi novel “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” to the big screen.
Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim will adapt the novel for the project, to be re-titled Uprising.
While it is unclear if Singer intends to direct the film, he is attached to produce alongside Lloyd Braun (Alphas, Dig) and Thor Halvorssen.
The last of Heinlein’s four Hugo Award-winning novels, “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” chronicles a lunar penal colony’s rebellion against the authority that controls it from Earth.
Heinlein, a celebrated science fiction writer, is best known as the author of Starship Troopers.
Most recently, Michael and Peter Spierig took on Heinlein’s story “All You Zombies” earlier this year with the Ethan Hawke vehicle Predestination.
There is a lot of science-fiction and fantasy talent behind this project, so hopefully if Singer can’t direct he finds someone that fits perfectly with the others.
