Fox has picked up the film rights to reclusive author John Twelve Hawks’ the Fourth Realm Trilogy–which consists of “The Traveler,” “The Dark River” and “The Golden City”–and hired Watchmen co-writer Alex Tse to adapt the sci-fi series, says The Hollywood Reporter.
“Traveler” is set in a U.S. society run by a secret organization seeking to control the population via constant observation. Seeking to rebel against these constraints are an almost extinct group of people called Travelers, who can project their spirit into other dimensions, and their protectors, called Harlequins.
Gil Netter (The Blind Side) and Andrew Tennenbaum (The Bourne Identity) are producing. Joe Regal is executive producing.
