According to the Hollywood Reporter, Twentieth Century Fox picked up the movie rights and Singer will helm the book-to-movie adaptation, with Arrow producer Marc Guggenheim translating the book for the silver screen. The film version will be called Uprising.
Heinlein’s 1966 book is about a lunar colony’s revolt from Earth, and was nominated for a Nebula Award in 1966 and won the Hugo Award for best sci-fi novel in 1967.
Two other previous attempts have failed to adapt Heinlein’s book to film, so hopefully third time’s the charm here. Other Heinlein books have made it to the screen, including the 1994 TV miniseries Red Planet, 1994 film The Puppet Masters, and a “very loose” interpretation in 1997’s Starship Troopers.
