Market Forces picked up by Warner

Posted by:
Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up the film rights to Richard Morgans book titled Market Forces. Basil Iwanyk's Thunder Road will produce and Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi will write the screenplay.

The book is set in a near future where companies and investment firms manipulate third world countries, raise and depose tyrants, and make their money from the spoils of war. Promotions in these companies are settled by road races to the death. The protagonist is a man who rises out of one of the many ghettos via these promotions, achieving a privileged life, which he begins to question.

Sounds pretty good to me. I haven't said that lately about a BIG Hollywood film in awhile so I actually look forward to seeing how this turns out.
