Paramount Adapting Existence 2.0
Image‘s rather craptacular blog has announced that Paramount pictures will be adapting their comic series Existence 2.0. Miles Millar and Alfred Gough will be adpating it with Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller’s Platinum Dunes and Circle of Confusion’s David Alpert producing.
Written by Nick Spencer and drawn by Ronald Salas, Existence 2.0 was a three issue limited series.
It focused on self-absorbed physicist Sylvester Baladine. After Baladine’s assassination, Baladine finds his consciousness transferred to the body of the hitman who killed him. Things don’t seem so bad until the people who “killed” Baladine kidnap his daughter. Baladine is forced to dig up his past to solve his own murder, making himself a target once more.
Existence 2.0 will be collected with its four-issue sequel, Existence 3.0, in trade paperback and available for sale in August 2010.
