According to the Hollywood Reporter, writer-director Joby Harold is in the running to helm the film adaptation of Platinum Studios’ Atlantis Rising.
The high concept of the film, according to producers, will be Aliens meets the Abyss.
Among the producers is Platinum chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, fresh from recent controversy over Platinum Studios subsidiary Wowio, which sputtered out after failing to pay creators for their work. One hopes that this movie deal will help the struggling creators of the company, who agreed to work for minimum wage in the face of looming financial woes.
