Brian K. Vaughan‘s “Ex Machina” is heading to the big screen!
The 43-year-old writer’s sci-fi comic book is getting a movie adaptation that will be called The Great Machine, THR reports.
Seberg writers Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel will pen the adaptation, and Brian will produce.
The comic book series, which Brian created with artist Tony Harris, was unveiled in 2004 and ran for 50 issues through DC Comics’ Wildstorm.
It followed Mitchell Hundred, “a former superhero who becomes the mayor of New York City after 9/11. Hundred had the power to talk to mechanical devices but the comic was concerned less about superheroics than issues of government and political leadership.”
Great Machine was the character’s superhero name.
The plot will center on Hundred “dealing with a threatened political career when the source of his powers returns to claim its debt.”
