Martin said: “I’m delighted that after almost 16 years, ‘Hunter’s Run’ will be made into a film. I’m bursting with excitement for the rich sci-fi universe my dear friends Daniel and Gardner are helping to exist beyond the pages of our book.”

Mark Raso (“Kodachrome”) is attached to direct the film based on an English-language script co-written with his brother Joseph, whose joint credits include the 2021 Netflix original sci-fi film, “Ac.”

The film will be produced by brothers Martin and Vince Gerardis, who produced “Game of Thrones” and “House of the Dragon.”

“I first met George when he showed my film ‘Copenhagen’ at his Jean-Cocteau cinema in Santa Fe and, among other things, we discussed a novel he had written that had great potential as a film,” Raso related, adding: ” I’m thrilled that we’ve come from that small conversation to a point where we’re realizing a visually and narratively innovative sci-fi adventure.”
