Best-selling author Daniel H. Wilson’s latest novel Amped has been optioned for a movie.
The deal gives Wilson two deals for movies based on his novels. The other is for his first novel, Robopacylpse.
The project originally had been set up in 2010 at Summit Entertainment, which optioned the novel in advance of its sale to Doubleday. But the company let the rights lapse as it merged with Lionsgate this year.
Set in the near future, Amped imagines a world where nanotech-enhanced people and ordinary humans are at war with one another.
