Universal and Imagine Plan Sci-Fi Tale Arclight


Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have plans to adapt Josin L. McQuein’s upcoming sci-fi novel Arclight into a feature film, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. The book, set for release this April, is officially described as follows:

There is the Light. There is the Dark. And no one survives The Fade. These are the absolutes… until a teenage girl stumbles out of the shadows with no memory of how she survived.

Her appearance brings hope, but also danger as a race of parasitic, chameleon-like creatures known as The Fade begin attacking those who have given her shelter. Torn between the possibility that she’s the key to defeating the Fade, and the growing dissent that would sacrifice the girl in hopes of stopping the attacks, she’s hard pressed to find anyone she can trust.

She finds a strained ally in the son of the man who died to bring her to safety. And when the two teens stumble across a captive Fade who begs them for help locating his lost mate, they begin to wonder if the Fade are the enemy they’ve been taught to believe.

Matthew Sand (Ninja Assassin) is attached to adapt the screenplay with Brian Grazer and Pouya Shahbazian producing and Sarah Bowen and Erica Huggins executive producing.
