“Godzilla” scribe to adapt Dan Sehlberg’s “Mona” sci-fi thriller

PanARMENIAN.Net - Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein has come on to write Mona for New Regency. The film is an adaptation of the upcoming novel by Dan Sehlberg, which is an international thriller that merges science fiction with real developments in the fields of thought-control systems and cyber warfare. A terrorist invents a computer virus that is infectious to humans and a Swedish scientist, who has invented a device that allows disabled people to use their minds to surf the web uses that technology to battle the terrorist, Deadline said.

Michael London and Janice Williams will produce the project via their Groundswell Productions banner. Niclas Salomonnson will executive produce the project.

Borenstein is currently writing the action sci-fi film Paladin for Disney, which he sold as an original pitch to the studio with Justin Springer set to produce. He’s come back on Godzilla (after a Frank Darabont polish), as that film heads toward a production start for a May 2014 release through Legendary Pictures.
