Producer Nabs Rights to Adaptation of Fragment!


Warren Fahy’s ultimate creature feature

Great news for those who have read, and enjoyed, Warren Fahy’s “Fragment” (which I’m currently halfway through, at the time of this writing).

The Green Zone and United 93‘s Lloyd Levin will produce the big screen adaptation. Fahy himself will pen the script. The author is also at work on a sequel to the novel.

The story tells of an island discovered by scientists filming a reality television show. Unfortunately, they can’t touch down on the island’s shores without being slaughtered by its inhabitants – creatures that have evolved for billions of years without the influence of any outside species.

Naturally, the government gets involved, fearing that if these creatures get off the island, they would eradicate mankind. It’s a terrific read and as the critical blurbs on the front and back cover say, it’s very reminiscent of “Jurassic Park.” But it definitely takes on a life of its own.
