In a TV landscape populated with reality shows that move quickly between the sublime and the stupid, have you ever wondered what would happen if things actually got a little out of control? We mean really out of control, not what the producers push out to make us think things are nuts! Then the new project Fragment is right up your chaos loving alley!
Variety reports that Lloyd Levin (Predator 2, Die Hard 2, The Green Zone, United 93) is set to produce the big screen adaptation of Warren Fahy’s bestseller Fragment, which is about a reality show that discovers a host of terrifying new species of animals on a remote South Pacific island. Fahy, whose tome was the subject of a bidding war at the London Book Fair, will pen the screenplay.
Fragment tells the story of a team of seafaring scientists filming a reality TV show who are astonished to encounter the species, which has been evolving in isolation for 600 million years. The encounter is caught on live TV. When NASA and the Navy arrive to investigate, scientists realize that the creatures and their ecosystem are lethal enough to wipe out the rest of the Earth. Authorities must decide whether to sterilize the island or try to save the terrible creatures.
Look for more soon.
