Alex Proyas to helm AMP

There may not be a single hotter name in the world of cinematic source material than that of novelist Daniel H. Wilson.

With Steven Spielberg set to adapt his novelRobopocalypse, Deadline is now reporting that Summit has nabbed up the rights to his novel, AMP, with the hopes of director Alex Proyas hopping aboard to helm the project.

The novel “is set in a world where the technology designed to make the disabled whole, turns them into supermen.” Color me slightly intrigued.

Personally, while I understand the disapproval that found its way to the film that was Proyas’ last, KNOWING, I do have to say, the sheer audacity of that picture made it one of the more interesting projects of recent memory. That said, I just simply don’t know what Proyas has left in his creative system. I will always give him the benefit of the doubt, but that trust is definitely starting to waver.
