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.
