'Zero-G' force heads to Fox


Fox has been hit by "Zero-G."

The studio has pre-emptively picked up the rights to a sci-fi thriller video game concept from Union Entertainment. The film project is being produced by Union Entertainment's Richard Leibowitz, Temple Hill Entertainment's Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen and the Gotham Group's Ellen Goldsmith-Vein.

"Zero-G" will be based on the game created by Daniel Jevons that's still a work in progress. It centers on a U.S. city being attacked by a devastating, never-before-seen weapon. The studio is eyeing the project as a tentpole.

The deal marks the first video game-to-film project for Union. (partialdiff)
