Disney Gets Rights to Surrogates
Walt Disney has obtained the film rights to graphic novel The Surrogates. The story will be turned into a sci-fi thriller by director Jonathan Mostow (U-571, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines). The graphic novel is published by Top Shelf Comix and written by Robert Venditti with illustrations by Brett Weldele. It is set in the future, in a world where humans live isolated lives and "interact vicariously, through surrogate robots." Michael Ferris and John Brancato will write the adaptation; the pair teamed with Mostow on Terminator 3.
