Everyone wants to rule the world it seems . . .

BZRK book coverSony 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!

    Title sounds like a Vin Diesel action flick . . .
