Platinum, Valhalla Enter Final Orbit


Platinum Studios has teamed with Valhalla Motion Pictures to turn the thriller comic book “Final Orbit” into a feature film, reports Variety. Russell Gewirtz (Righteous Kill, Inside Man) will write the script.

Valhalla chair Gale Anne Hurd and Platinum Studios chairman-CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg will produce.

“Final Orbit,” which will be published by Platinum Studios Comics early next year, tells the story of a lottery that gives thrill-seekers a chance to vacation aboard a newly completed International Space Station. But the trips turns nightmarish after the station is damaged, trapping tourists in a crippled module with no trained astronauts to help them.

Randy Greenberg will executive produce and Valhalla’s Gary Ventimiglia will co-produce.
