Ten days after Chronicle director Josh Trank was reportedly in the running to tackle a Venom movie, Deadline is reporting the director will indeed be tackling a comic adaptation. It just won't be connected to Sony's Spidey franchise in any way. The online trade reports that after sometime in development hell, Warner Bros. Pictures has tasked Trank with tackling a feature film based on Christian Gossett's series, The Red Star. Trank will be charged with working alongside writer Jason Rothenberg, the man currently fleshing out the story into script form.
Plot Concept: First published by Image Comics in 1999, the story is set in an alternate reality's Soviet Russia and blends technology and magic together within its storyline. The publisher describes the series as an epic battle in a world of militarized sorcery and monolithic technology, where -- unknown to all but a few -- the ghosts of old soldiers continue to fight alongside the living.
