Arash Amel has been hired to rewrite Methuselah for Warner Bros. Variety reports that the I Am Legend 2 writer will get a page-one rewrite of the action-adventure film. James Watkins (The Woman in Black) is directing the film, which is being produced by David Heyman (Harry Potter franchise) under his Heyman Films banner. The first draft was written by Watkins. The story follows "a 1,000-year-old man who has used his time on the planet to develop an unparalleled set of survival skills."
Amel is just finishing up I Am Legend 2, and is best known for the Black List script Grace of Monaco, a period film set to star Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. His first produced script, The Expatriate, arrives in theaters this fall.
