Last year, Dan Gilroy (THE BOURNE LEGACY, REAL STEEL) signed on to write a screenplay based on Stan Lee’s newest character, Annihilator. Barry Josephson, of BONES and ENCHANTED fame, has joined Magic Storm Entertainment to produce.
Eric Mika, the CEO, had this to say about the deal: “Barry is the perfect partner at every level to produce a film of this magnitude that targets a global market, including mainland China…Barry’s talents combined with Dan Gilroy’s explosive script makes Stan Lee’s treatment extremely powerful and a cornerstone for a unique franchise.“
ANNIHILATOR concerns Ming, a Chinese ex-pat, who is given a choice to stay in prison or join a secret super soldier program in the U.S. Guess what he chooses. Sounds… wonderful?
