David Hayter Confirmed as Writer for Lost Planet Movie
Variety is reporting that David “Solid Snake” Hayter has been confirmed to write the screenplay for the Warner Brothers movie based on the videogame Lost Planet. You may recall that last moth both Hayter and Warner Bros were in talks with Capcom about the movie, and it looks like those talks turned out well for all parties involved.
Hayter has previously written the screenplays for the movies “X-Men 1 & 2″, and the upcoming “Watchmen”.
Producers for the movie will be Avi Arad, Ari Arad and Steven Paul who produced many Marvel comic book movies until Marvel created their own production company. The producers have their own company called Seaside Entertainment which is currently adapting Ghost in the Shell into a live action movie.
Capcom will contribute to the financing of the Lost Planet movie.
