“Top Gun : Maverick” and “TRON Legacy” helmer Joseph Kosinski will direct “Chariot”, a Warner Bros-produced adaptation of the graphic novel of the same name.
“Jack Ryan” alum Julian Meiojas will script the film with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen producing with Kosinski.
The novel, recently published by Artists, Writers and Artisan, tells of “a Cold War-era secret government project to provide its star agent with a weapon unlike any other in the form of a state-of-the-art sports car. It sank into the ocean decades ago, the agent along with it. A petty criminal looking to reform his life has stumbled upon the Chariot, and he’s about to find out that the agent’s consciousness is still controlling it.”
Kosinski’s next, “Top Gun : Maverick” is released in theaters this November after being pushed back numerous times due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
