ON

Dan Harris (Superman Returns, X2: X-Men United) has been set by Universal Pictures to write Dante’s Inferno, a live-action film based on the Electronic Arts video game in which players journey through the depths of hell.

Strike Entertainment’s Mark Abraham and Eric Newman are producing with EA Entertainment. EA veep Patrick O’Brien and game creator Jonathan Knight are also involved in the development of the film.

Universal acquired the title in the fall in a four-studio bidding battle before the EA game even had a formal title.
