Heat Vision is reporting that Legendary Pictures is developing a live-action remake of the animated Serbian film, Technotise: Edit and I.
The company has picked up a pitch by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) who will write the screenplay. Rae Sanchini, who worked with James Cameron on Solaris, Titanic and Strange Days, will produce alongside Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni of Legendary Pictures.
The Serbian movie is set in Belgrade in the year 2074 and centers on a failing art student who decides to get a chip implant to circumvent studying but gets more than she bargained for. You can watch the film’s trailer below.
The trade says that Scott Glassgold and Raymond Brothers acquired the remake rights and right after saw a fake trailer for Green Lantern made by Jaron Pitts. The duo, who will executive produce with Kalogridis, hired Pitts to make a trailer for what a possible Technotise movie would look like. You can watch both of those trailers below as well.
