Francis Lawrence To Direct “Stalag-X”
“Hunger Games” sequels and “I Am Legend” director Francis Lawrence is set to helm a feature adaptation of Kevin J. Anderson and Steven L. Sears’ graphic novel “Stalag-X” at New Republic Pictures.
The story follows a reclusive human soldier imprisoned in an alien POW camp on a harsh distant planet.
Believing his mind is the key to ending a decade-long interstellar conflict, the aliens called the Krael subject him to mind-bending experiments that rip into the deepest recesses of his memories.
Lawrence, Brian Oliver, Bradley Fischer and Cameron MacConomy are producing while Joy Wilkinson will adapt the script.
