Hiroshi Sakurazaka's science fiction novel All You Need is Kill has been set up at Warner Bros. and is expected to rapidly move into filming within a year. Dante Harper adapted the book into screenplay format on spec; Deadline reports that Harper was paid low seven figures against $3 million for his work.
While it's very rare for a writer to adapt a novel on spec without agreeing to a deal upfront, this time the payoff was substantial for Harper and the film's producing team, former DreamWorks executive Jason Hoffs and 3 Arts' Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally. The sizeable payoff for the finished script likely speaks to the finished product capturing the interest at Warner Bros.
An English translation of Sakurazaka's novel has been published by Viz Media.- Deadline. Comment on this Scoop (0)
