CBS Film has secured the movie rights to A.G. Riddle's sci-fi e-book trilogy series, Atlantis. The first story in this "Origin trilogy," is called The Atlantis Gene, and it was self-published and released in March 2013. It was followed by The Atlantis Plague in November 2013 and The Atlantis World in May 2014.
The story follows "a brilliant geneticist and an international counterterrorism agent who must team up to thwart a global pandemic and discover the truth behind the origins of humanity."
Sounds intriguing! I haven't read these e-books, but it's a cool concept that could make for an awesome film series. I think it's great that these self published e-books are getting movie deals like this.
Here's a short story summary form the first book:
"70,000 years ago, the human race almost went extinct. We survived, but no one knows how. Until now.
"The countdown to the next stage of human evolution is about to begin, and humanity may not survive this time."
