Len Wiseman to adapt Shrapnel comic

Underworld and Live Free or Die Hard director Len Wiseman is working on bringing Nick Sagan and Mark Long's comic book Shrapnel to the screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wiseman caught sight of the comic book while shopping with his daughter and locked down the rights to adapt the property as a live-action, possibly 3-D release.

Shrapnel is the story of a space marine leading a resistance movement of colonists on Venus that is fighting off a Solar-System-wide Alliance.

Wiseman is also slated to direct the assassination thriller Motorcade, a big-budget feature based on the Gears of War videogame from a script by Wanted screenwriter Chris Morgan, and an adaptation of the Atlantis Rising comic book from a screenplay by Awake writer Joby Harold.

No word yet on when Wiseman will fit Shrapnel into his schedule.
