Variety reports that Japanese advertising agency Dentsu and Hayakawa Publishing Corp. have entered into a live-action feature rights deal for Japanese sci-fi novels that have attracted the interest of Transformers producer Don Murphy and Shoot ‘Em Up helmer Michael Davis.
AngryFilms principal Murphy plans to develop an adaptation of sci-fi author Issui Ogawa’s novel Tokisuna no Ou (The Lord of the Sands of Time), which Hayakawa published in 2007. The time-travel war novel takes place in the 26th century after human life on Earth has been annihilated by alien invaders. The story follows a messenger who is sent back to the past to battle the aliens.
More on this one as it comes.
