Metro 2033 Shoots For The Big Screen

Dmitry Glukhovsky author of Metro 2033 has partnered with Michael De Luca to spearhead a feature film based on the cult media franchise. Word has it that not Stephen L’Heureux is also attached to the embryonic project.

Based on Glukhovsky’s harrowing post-apocalyptic novel series the author released an official statement in light of the announcement, revealing how he has been extremely careful before allowing his passion project to be handed over to Hollywood producers. He stated “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 L’Heureux have a great vision for this project, and I feel it’s an honor to work with them”.

At the heart of the story is Artyom, a young soldier struggling to survive in the nuclear fallout from World War III. Housed up in the Russian underground, the Metro universe incorporates supernatural elements into the mix in the form of the Dark Ones, and there’s plenty of stories to tell from within the new civilization that rises from the Moscow tunnels.
