Bruckheimer, Straczynski Unite for Shattered Union


Jerry Bruckheimer has tapped J. Michael Straczynski to adapt 2K Games’ “Shattered Union” video game for Disney.

“Shattered Union,” developed by PopTop Software (“Tropico” series, “Railroad Tycoon 2” and “3”), is a turn-based strategy wargame in which players fight as one of many warring factions in an attempt to reunify the United States fractured by a second civil war.

The game was published in 2005. You can visit the official website for more info.

J. Michael Straczynski (upcoming Ninja Assassin) is writing a Silver Surfer film at Fox and a Forbidden Planet reboot at Warner Bros. He also adapted World War Z for Paramount and his Vietnam War drama They Marched Into Sunlight is in pre-production at Universal with Paul Greengrass set to direct.
