Los Angeles: Author Dmitry Glukhovsky novel 'Metro 2033', is set to get a movie adaptation.
Michael De Luca and Stephen L'Heureux have teamed up with the author to bring alive his bestselling novel, that has spawned an 80 book franchise and two cult video games, on big screen, reported Variety.
"My novel and I have been waiting for this to happen for the last 10 years. I have previously been extremely careful about handing my 'baby' over to Hollywood producers for adaption for a feature film, but now I feel that it has landed in the right hands.
"De Luca and LHeureux have a great vision for this project, and I feel it's an honor to work with them," said Glukhovsky.
'Metro 2033' is a story of a young man named Artyom who survived World War III by hiding in Moscow's subway system, the world's largest existing nuclear fallout shelter. In the tunnels he and others build a new civilization and culture, mimicking the old world now gone.
