World War Z director Marc Forster is set to direct the feature film adaptation of the sci-fi novel Red Rising. The script for the film was written by the book's author, Pierce Brown.
The story "takes place on desolate Mars, where the protagonist is caught in a class system that thrives on oppression and secrecy. He is a Red, the lowest member of society, born to toil in the bowels of the planet in service to the sovereign Golds. When Darrow suffers a devastating loss and betrayal he becomes a revolutionary, out to bring about social justice. Questions of fate, duality, and loyalty, evolve in a cruel test of war between the sons and daughters of the ruling elite."
According to the report, this will be the next project that Forster will work on. I thought he did a great job with World War Z, which was supposed to be a big flop, but ended up being a huge success. Red Rising sounds like a solid project for Forster to take on.
