Amped Cyborgs For The Big Screen, Chemically Mutated Superpowers For The Small

Britain’s own Working Title films are setting up a deal to adapt the novel Amped into a movie, say The Hollywood Reporter. Written by Robopocalypse‘s Daniel H. Wilson, this book features not robots, but cyborgs – though it is also about a war in which common or garden humans are the underdogs.

Dark City director Alex Proyas has been attached to direct for at least a couple of years. He’s become involved with a lot of other projects in the last few years but, sadly, none of them have come to fruition. I guess this leaves him free to return to Amped.

And besides, Proyas seems to be on an uptick right now, however, as he’s also working on a TV pilot with Eureka‘s Jaimie Paglia.

According to Deadline, that show will be called Evolve and is going to adapt the Toxic City novels by Tim Lebbon:

Set two years after a mysterious biological agent is released over Los Angeles… a small group of ordinary citizens outside the quarantined zone, who do not believe the government’s story, embark on a mission to uncover the truth… What they discover is a world where once-ordinary humans now have extraordinary abilities and powerful government forces seek to destroy them.

Sounds like a familiar rattle bag of genre bits and pieces. As such, I expect it could be quite the success on network TV. Well, providing they get the right cast at least.
