Imagi Animation Studios (TMNT) has acquired all rights to screenplay Fluorescent Black, says Variety.
The script, by sci-fi writer and maker of film shorts Matt Wilson, will first be adapted as a graphic novel to be illustrated by Nathan Fox with text by Wilson. The futuristic actioner is set in Singapore and the Malaysian peninsula.
The book is scheduled for completion by mid-2008 and will be featured on the cover of the July edition of Heavy Metal magazine. Imagi has not detailed its plans for a movie adaptation of the property.
The company is currently in production on two $40 million movies, Gatchaman and AstroBoy.
