〉The Black Hawk Down screenwriter will adapt Image Comic’s The Activity
Following the news dropped this morning by Latino Review, we did some digging ourselves to uncover the exclusive details that Ken Nolan’s adaptation of Image Comic’s series THE ACTIVITY is set up at Paramount Pictures and Lin Pictures. The much-buzzed about project was acquired up by Paramount and Lin in October, and has been in active development since.
Created by Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerards, the comic series follows a secret elite special forces unit hidden inside the ISA that are tasked with repairing botched operations, commanding bleeding-edge technology and planning and carrying out lethal action. After a five-member Activity team code-named Omaha uncovers a massive terrorist network with members in the U.S. intelligence communities, they are framed for being part of the infiltration, and are forced to go rogue to both clear themselves and bring the real terrorists to justice.
Nolan, an active fan of the series, even wrote a forward for the comic’s third volume.
Nolan gained notoriety for scripting the Oscar-winning war drama Black Hawk Down, and most recently made waves with his 2014 Hit List and Black List spec Defection. He also wrote The Grays for Sony Pictures, Rocket’s Red Glare, and Thunder Run, for which he is also a producer.
