Variety reported that a Metro 2033 movie is in the early stages of development, which is great for people who loved the game and especially Dmitry Glukhovsky’s superb novel.
The film will be based on the novel and not on the videogame of the same name, which will obviously bring a different experience on the big screen for people who have only played the game. The movie will follow though the tale of Artyom, who was born just before the war that destroyed the world and grew up underground, as he struggles to survive in this ugly world before eventually coming into contact with the Dark Ones.
Glukhovsky had some interesting things to say about this very interesting project: “My novel and I have been waiting for this to happen for the last ten years, (…) I have previously been extremely careful about handing my ‘baby’ over to Hollywood producers for adaption for a feature film, but now I feel that it has landed in the right hands. Producers Michael De Luca and Stephen L’Heureux have a great vision for this project, and I feel it’s an honor to work with them.”
