Keeps filling its plate with future comic-book adaptations, Warner Bros. Pictures is on the move to develop "In the Small" based on the upcoming Michael Hague graphic novel following its successful acquisition of the screen rights to the work, Variety has learned.
Story is said to center on a strange explosion that leaves everything else in the world intact but shrinks all humans to six inches tall. Survivors then are forced to face a new social order in which man is no longer at the top of the food chain - and is confronted by a new and greater existential threat.
Names to pen, direct, and star have not yet been announced, but it is confirmed that Akiva Goldsman will take care of producing matters through his Weed Road Pictures shingle. Goldsman, a 1983 graduate of Wesleyan University, is widely recognized to be an acclaimed screenwriter, having won an Oscar for his writing work in 2001’s "A Beautiful Mind."
