Chronicle director Josh Trank tapped to adapt graphic novel The Red Star

It seems that VENOM flick that has been in the works will need to wait a little bit longer before seeing the light of day. Reason being is that Josh Trank, who was in talks to direct the feature, has a new project on his plate - adapting the graphic novel THE RED STAR!

Deadline New York are reporting that Warner Bros. have tapped the CHRONICLE director with the task of adapting the sci-fi comic. Jason Rothenberg will be penning the screenplay based on the source material from creator Christian Gossett. Neal Moritz will produce through his Original Film shingle.

The Soviet-themed sci-fi fantasy comic book series is set in an alternate USSR where futuristic technology co-mingles with magical elements. The protagonist is a Red Fleet soldier who goes up against an ex-leader who rules with an iron fist.

So there you have it folks! While Trank does have other projects on the table it seems THE RED STAR will be his next. Hopefully more news on this one pops up soon and when it does we'll be right here to pass it straight to all of you.

Extra Tidbit: Josh Trank's only other directing credit is the 2007 TV series "The Kill Point," which starred Jennifer Ferrin (above).
