Legendary to Adapt Ex Machina Into The Great Machine

-

Legendary Entertainment is turning Brian K. Vaughan‘s comic book Ex Machina (not to be confused with the Alex Garland movie) into a movie that will be scripted by Seberg writers Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel. The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which says that the adaptation will be titled The Great Machine and will be produced by Vaughan. Legendary signed an overall film and TV deal with Vaughan over a year ago.

The comic book debuted in 2004 and ran for 50 issues under DC Comics imprint Wildstorm. Tony Harris did the art for the comic book series. Amazon described the Complete Series Omnibus of Ex Machina as follows:

“When a strange accident gives civil engineer Mitchell Hundred the amazing ability to control machinery, he uses his newfound powers to become the world’s first living, breathing superhero. But the thrill of risking his life simply to help maintain the status quo eventually wears thin, leading Mitch to retire from masked crime-fighting in order to run for Mayor of New York City–an election he wins by a landslide.

“And that’s when the real weirdness begins.

“Before it’s over, the lives of Mayor Hundred and everyone around him will be turned upside down and inside out–and the very fate of humanity will turn on his actions. Will the man who stopped the second plane on 9/11 be able to resist the incalculably greater threat now looming on the horizon? Or will he prove to be the ultimate example of the corrupting nature of power?”

THR adds that The Great Machine will revolve around Hundred dealing with a threatened political career when the source of his powers returns to claim its debt.
