Fuqua and Butler in Talks for Afterburn

Relativity Media got them interested with the screenplay written by Matt Johnson (Into the Blue), though Deadline reports that Christian Gudegast (A Man Apart) is being brought on board for rewrites.

Taking place a year after a solar flare has destroyed half the planet, leaving treasure hunters trying to retrieve what’s left, Afterburn is being produced by Neal Moritz, Tobey Maguire, Toby Jaffe and Jenno Topping.
