Sony Pictures bought the rights to BZRK, a yet-to-be-published young adult novel by Michael Grant, the author of the Gone series and co-writer of Animorphs and Everworld.
Here’s the plot according to the back cover:
Set in the near future, a conspiracy is afoot to create a perfect and perfectly controlled world. The Armstrong Fancy Gift Corporation is a front for the conjoined Armstrong twins, Charles and Benjamin, and the plot to create their own version of utopia.
A shadowy guerilla group known as BZRK forms a nascent resistance movement. Both sides develop sophisticated nanotechnology to achieve their goals:
-The Armstrong twins develop the nanobot, a stealth device that latches onto the brains of unsuspecting citizens -BZRK’s DNA-derived biots are deployed to search out and destroy the insidious bots. If biots are destroyed, the brain cells of their DNA-donor also die. Hence the name BZRK.
Why anyone would want to rule the world is a bit of a mystery to us here at SciFiMovieHype.com because whoever gets the job must sort out the Greek economic crisis and we wouldn’t wish that on anyone – not even the swine who cut us off in traffic this morning!
