Turistas scribe Michael Ross to adapt BZERK for Sam Raimi and Sony

Sam Raimi is set to produce the young adult novel BZERK into a feature film for Sony Pictures. The book, the first in a trilogy (of course) was acquired last fall by Sony. Michael Ross (TURISTAS) was just hired to adapt the thriller, which takes place in a future where teens control biological nanobot robots warriors.

Peep the plot:

Set in the near future, BZRK is the story of a war for control of the human mind. Charles and Benjamin Armstrong, conjoined twins and owners of the Armstrong Fancy Gifts Corporation, have a goal: to turn the world into their vision of utopia. No wars, no conflict, no hunger. And no free will. Opposing them is a guerrilla group of teens, code name BZRK, who are fighting to protect the right to be messed up, to be human. This is no ordinary war, though. Weapons are deployed on the nano-level. The battleground is the human brain. And there are no stalemates here: It’s victory . . . or madness.

No director is attached to BZERK yet, but we'll keep you posted on that front.

TURISTAS star Melissa George

Extra Tidbit: BZERK author Michael Grant co-created the popular series ANIMORPHS.
