All movies come from somewhere and the best ones come from great novels. That’s the direction Sony is heading with their plans to adapt ‘The Themis Files‘, a premiere sci-fi novel by Sylvain Neuvel as a vehicle for Matt Tolmach and Josh Bratman to produce.
Superstar writer David Koepp is responsible for some of the greatest stories that have come out of Hollywood. Hits like ‘Mission Impossible‘, ‘Jurassic Park‘ and ‘Spider-Man‘ has directed the latest Johnny Depp starrer ‘Mortdecai‘ and 2004’s Depp thriller ‘Secret Window‘, which I’ve always enjoyed and is based on a short story by Stephen King.
‘The Themis Files‘ tells a story that begins with a young girl falls into a hole and landing right into the palm of a giant hand that has been buried underground in the Black Hills of South Dakota, fast forward several years to many other giant pieces being found, the military taking over and abandoning the project and the same young girl, Rose Franklin, is a physicist and spearheads the building project as quietly as possible. When the project leaks into public knowledge the reaction is less than desired when paranoia grips the nation taking the world to the brink of another world war, the large question remains – what is it?
